Translating findings across the spectrum of research disciplines.
Research at the Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center is organized around five foundational Scientific Programs that are supported by a Cancer Center Support Grant from the National Cancer Institute. 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 complementary scientific programs serve as vehicles for discovery:
- Development and Cancer
- Cancer Cell Networks
- Chemistry and Cancer
- Experimental Therapeutics
- Population Science and Cancer Control
Simmons Cancer Center promotes interdisciplinary research by providing investigators with the Shared Resources (cores) and interactive forums necessary to achieve their scientific goals and objectives.
