Graduate Students

The Cancer Biology Concentration provides training opportunities in cancer research ranging from basic to translational. The program spans many disciplines, including molecular and cell biology, genetics and epigenetics, biochemistry, microbiology, pharmacology, anatomy, pathology, epidemiology, bioinformatics, immunology and many others involved in the understanding of the development, progression, dissemination, and treatment of cancer.

The Goal of the Cancer Biology Concentration is to utilize molecular, cellular, biochemical, and host experimental approaches develop new knowledge that will enhance our understanding of cancer that will translate into improved detection, prevention and treatment of this disease.

The Mission of the Cancer Biology Concentration is to train the next generation of cancer biologists to make significant contributions to basic and translational research in cancer prevention and diagnosis, cancer epidemiology, novel therapy discovery, and cancer treatment.
