Research Programs

  • Cancer Genes & Molecular Regulation
    • The scientific goal of the Cancer Genes & Molecular Regulation Program is to identify novel genomic and genetic alterations that play causal roles in cancer development and to study genes, proteins, and signaling pathways that mediate the altered phenotypes of cancer cells.

  • Cancer Immunology
    • The scientific goal of the Cancer Immunology Program is to understand the basic mechanisms by which the immune system is regulated in cancer and to apply these discoveries to the development of immunotherapy trials.

  • Developmental Cancer Therapeutics
    • The scientific goal of the Developmental Cancer Therapeutics Program is to discover and characterize unique agents and pathways that will impact the development of more effective cancer therapies and to translate these discoveries into clinical applications by using proof-of-principle, early phase clinical and correlative science studies.

  • Cancer Control
    • The scientific goal of the Cancer Control Program is to foster population-based research that will lead to a reduction in cancer morbidity and mortality in South Carolina while providing scientific evidence and novel cancer control interventions that can be applied beyond the state’s borders.
