Research

From bench to bedside...and back again

Our translational and clinical researchers collaborate to convert conceptual breakthroughs into novel therapies that will benefit our patients. They work in multidisciplinary teams that focus on translational research targeting individual cancers, as well as those focused on basic research that crosses multiple diseases across the cancer continuum.

RESEARCH HIGHLIGHT

Study of breast cancer metastasis upends conventional wisdom

Breast cancer cells do not undergo a commonly accepted transformation in order to spread to distant organs. The discovery, made in the labs of Ding Cheng Gao, Ph.D., and Vivek Mittal, Ph.D. may settle a longstanding debate about how cancers spread and profoundly change the way many forms of the disease are treated.
