The Illinois family is teaming up to promote cancer research and advocacy during Fighting Illini men’s basketball games.

A collaboration between the Cancer Center at Illinois (CCIL) and the Division of Intercollegiate Athletics, “Krush Cancer” night showcases the revolutionary cancer technologies and treatments developed at the University of Illinois by interacting with the Illinois community.

Fans receive informational resources as they enter the game, and the CCIL’s research, scientists and students are featured before the game, during timeouts and halftime. Throughout the game, fans wave Cancer Center at Illinois towels and proudly sport orange “Krush Cancer” t-shirts.

The Cancer Center at Illinois unites world-class faculty who uncover fundamental knowledge, innovate new technologies and enable cancer-free lives. The CCIL’s interdisciplinary expertise in science and engineering, exceptional facilities, and educational experiences are changing the way Illinois takes on cancer. CCIL researchers are discovering new anti-cancer drugs, transforming molecular imaging for research and clinical care, and partnering with industry and clinical cancer centers, like Mayo Clinic and Carle Health System, to improve human health.

The “Krush Cancer” game is one of the many ways Cancer Center at Illinois is using collaboration to further knowledge and education. Learn more about the Cancer Center at Illinois.
