For Researchers Draft
Masonic Cancer Center research is focused in research programs that bring together scientists from different disciplines to discover processes that affect cancer. These programs are organized around scientific themes that reflect advances in cancer research and provide opportunities for interactions across the cancer community to solve organ-specific clinical questions. Researchers in these programs are making discoveries that are leading to better ways to treat and prevent cancer.
Carcinogenesis & Chemoprevention
Elucidate chemical and molecular mechanisms of carcinogenesis and develop and evaluate practical methods for cancer prevention.
Translational Working Groups
The Translational Working Groups (TWGs) are a mechanism to foster interprogrammatic and translational research to promote new discoveries. TWGs organize MCC members from various research programs into groups designed to address site-specific cancers, foster collaborations, and provide the necessary scientific and clinical expertise to improve outcomes for the specific disease sites.
