Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center (formerly Roswell Park Cancer Institute)  is America's first cancer center, founded in 1898 by Dr. Roswell Park. His revolutionary model of a “multidisciplinary approach” to cancer — with scientists and clinicians working in concert and in consult — has become the standard by which all modern-day comprehensive cancer centers are measured.

With Dr. Khurshid Guru's assistance, Roswell Park has become part of the Vattikuti Foundation Network.  Dr. Guru has an interest in teaching the future generation of surgeons. His educational and training interests align with the Vattikuti Foundation's interest in training robotic surgeons.  Dr. Guru is the Associate Professor of Oncology, Department of Urology; Director, Robotic Surgery and the Robert P. Huben Endowed Professor of Oncology for RPCI.
