Translating findings across the spectrum of research disciplines.
The NCI-designated Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center is organized along scientific research programs. A common theme of each scientific program is to translate cancer research findings in one discipline, whether laboratory, clinical, or population-based research, across the spectrum of other research disciplines to improve methods of cancer prevention, diagnosis, detection, and treatment.
These five complementary scientific programs serve as vehicles for discovery:
- Development and Cancer
- Cancer Cell Networks
- Chemistry and Cancer
- Experimental Therapeutics of Cancer
- Population Science and Cancer Control
Simmons Cancer Center promotes interdisciplinary research by providing researchers with the shared core resources and interactive forums necessary to achieve their scientific goals and objectives.
Rapid progress in cancer research has dramatic implications in clinical care. Please review our patient care programs for more information.
