2017 Dragon Boat


Join our team in supporting cancer patients in the Upstate by donating to the 11th annual Dragon Boat Upstate Festival. By making a donation in support of our Dragon Boat team, you help provide vital cancer research and survivorship programs to cancer patients in our community. So many of us have been touched by cancer in some way and this event provides a way for us to honor and remember loved ones that have faced or continue to face the disease.


What we do

KIYATEC’s goal is to deliver more accurate predictions of patient response to drugs and biologics. We are fulfilling this mission by applying 3D cell-based phenotypic models of cancer with more physiologically relevant tumor microenvironments. By using the patient’s own living tumor cells, these novel diagnostics will serve to better inform clinicians of the best therapeutic candidate to treat that patient’s cancer.

We have proudly enrolled 344 patients in our study.

  • 154 Ovarian Cancer
  • 125 Breast Cancer
  • 42 Brain
  • 1 Small Cell Lung Cancer
  • 22 Other cancers

KIYATEC has actually received funds raised from earlier Dragon Boat Festivals for early funding of our Ovarian clinical assay.

Make a gift to our Dragon Boat team and know that you are making a difference to cancer patients right here in the Upstate.
