Director of Development, Principal Gifts, LIVESTRONG Cancer Institutes University of Texas at Austin, Dell Medical School, Austin, Texas

The University of Texas at Austin (UT Austin) is internationally recognized as a bold, ambitious leader in research and higher education. A member of the prestigious Association for American Universities (AAU), UT Austin is one of the nation’s premier centers for academic excellence and has more than 40 programs ranked among the top 10 in the country.

The LIVESTRONG Cancer Institutes of the Dell Medical School at the University of Texas at Austin (LCI) are launching a new way to treat and care for cancer patients. The mission is to radically improve people’s cancer experience and quality of life; revolutionize how cancer is treated; and reinvent the way cancer patients are cared for. The vision of the LCI is to become an accessible, patient-centered, collaborative, and high-value cancer ecosystem which places cancer patients at the center of all the LCI does and works collaboratively with local scientists, clinicians, and the community to discover, develop, and deliver high impact options for cancer patients. In addition, the LCI is developing novel models of care delivery that tackle the complexities of cancer care locally and beyond.

Working towards a soft launch in December, the LCI will start to incubate parts of its model through providing some services to patients and their caregivers affected by gastrointestinal and gynecological cancers.
