Our faculty are acknowledged both nationally and internationally for their innovative work in cancer research, resulting in regular collaborations with a variety of institutions globally in addition to collaborations with colleagues within our own division and institution. The focus of our researchers is centered around 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.
Our researchers continue to study the mechanisms of resistance developed over time by patients to certain drugs as well as the innate resistance in some patients to certain drugs. Innovative strides continue to be made in cancer research each day as a result of the continued passion and dedication by our faculty in the fight against cancer.
