Interdisciplinary investigation puts CU Cancer Center at the leading edge of cancer research
Basic scientists at the CU Cancer Center strive to understand better the fundamental biological activity that leads to cancer. They work closely with clinical researchers to translate laboratory findings into drugs, therapies and techniques that can be applied to patients. Clinical researchers then enroll patients in one of the more than 250 available clinical trials to test these new treatments in cancer research studies. The results of this collaboration are promising new techniques to diagnose, treat and prevent cancer.
Investigators at the CU Cancer Center focus on interdisciplinary research conducted in four programs.
