As an oncology-only, evergreen, crossover fund , the OIF aims to make a positive social impact beyond financial returns. MPM has dedicated a portion of its own profits from the OIF to provide access to cancer care in the developing world and, in collaboration with the American Association for Cancer Research, to identify and fund promising academic cancer research.
