Faculty & Research

The Department of Oncology's world-renowned research faculty are discovering cancer risk factors, designing effective prevention strategies, and learning how to detect cancers earlier. They are developing and testing the cancer treatments of tomorrow - targeted therapies that will improve both survival and quality of life. By defining key molecular events in the onset and progression of cancer, research faculty are making progress toward the ultimate goal: to eradicate cancer.

The Department of Oncology's investigators conduct their research in collaborative, interdisciplinary research programs and centers. Their efforts are supported by the Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center's shared resources.
