A National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center, Fox Chase is a hotbed for new research, with more than 200 trials ongoing at any one time. Fox Chase physicians have won numerous accolades, including two Nobel Prizes. Fox Chase has created a radiation therapy site in Buckingham Township, Bucks County and has been mulling a merger with a larger partner such as Temple. In early 2012, Fox Chase is slated to open the Cancer Genome Institute.
