Researchers in the Division of Medical Oncology are nationally and internationally known for their work in cancer research. They collaborate with colleagues in their own division, institution and many institutions globally.
Our research focus centers on the development and application of experimental therapeutics and targeted agents for future cancer patient treatment. This includes testing new drugs in models systems starting with in-vitro cell culture and moving to in vivo models. New compounds are developed within the Division as well as through collaboration with pharmaceutical companies.
Our researchers continue to study the mechanisms of resistance developed over time by patients to certain drugs and also studies of the innate resistance in some patients to certain drugs are a central focus.
Many exciting strides are being made in the fight against cancer and we remain passionate in our quest to succeed in the battle.

The Research Office administers several Department of Medicine programs to promote the success of our researchers.
Department of Medicine Outstanding Early Career Scholar Program (OECSP)
The Outstanding Early Career Scholar Program was created to accelerate the career development of exceptionally creative and promising faculty members early in their career.
Department of Medicine Research Bridge Program
The Research Bridge Program is designed to preserve the capacity of our faculty to do research and will bridge support, especially for those effected by reductions in NIH budgets.
Department of Medicine Team Science Program
The Team Science Program facilitates the development or enhancement of collaborative research teams that will be competitive for multi-investigator grant proposals and innovative new approaches within the DOM.
Department of Medicine Health Services Research Development Grant
The two-year Health Services Research Fellowship program provides research and training support for fellows or instructor-level junior faculty members in the Department of Medicine who are pursuing a career in health services research.
