When President Biden re-ignited the Cancer Moonshot in February 2022, he announced a whole of government response, including the formation of a Cancer Cabinet to be convened by the White House, bringing together cabinet agencies and relevant departments, including multiple White House components to address progress against cancer in five priority actions.

Led by President Biden and First Lady Dr. Jill Biden, the Cancer Cabinet involves multiple White House Offices, including the: Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), where the Cancer Moonshot is housed, as well as the Office of the Vice President (OVP), Domestic Policy Council (DPC), Gender Policy Council (GPC), Office of Management and Budget (OMB), Office of Public Engagement (OPE), and the Office of Legislative Affairs (OLA).
