For a number of years the Mass General Cancer Center has been at the forefront of the promising field of targeted therapy, in which treatment is tailored to attack specific genetic mutations responsible for an individual patient’s tumor. A major gift of $10 million from Henri and Belinda Termeer, announced Sept. 13, will enable the Cancer Center to expand its efforts in this area through the creation of the Henri and Belinda Termeer Center for Targeted Therapies.
