Research

The more than 250 researchers at the Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center, who have successfully competed for $95 million (total costs) in peer-reviewed cancer research funding, are organized into eight research programs.

Program activities focus on different aspects of cancer, from its molecular and cellular mechanisms through its unique behavior in different tissues to statistical aspects of its occurrence and treatment in large populations. Nonetheless, the members of each program share a commitment to reduce cancer incidence and tumor progression and to improve the quality of life of those affected by cancer.

The Center has 17 shared resources that provide services essential to basic and translational cancer research.
