Consortium leadership has identified five scientific areas of special focus in which our Cancer Center is poised to make an impact :
Make immunotherapy the standard platform of care for many adult and pediatric malignancies.
Basic Biology of Cancer
Apply Consortium expertise in basic cancer biology and computational biology to make advances in cancer diagnostics and treatment.
Population Based Research
Apply Consortium population sciences expertise to identify the mechanistic links between obesity, physical activity and other factors and cancer; and develop strategies to reduce disparities.
Health Care Economics and Outcomes Research
Build a leading program in comparative effectiveness and health economics to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of cancer care in our region.
Leverage Consortium strengths in infection-related cancers, HIV-related malignancies and health metrics/ outcomes research to reduce the burden of adult and pediatric cancer in resource-limited countries.
