Cancer Biology

How a cell becomes tumorigenic is complex and remains enigmatic. To understand the development and oncogenic nature of cancerous cells requires knowledge and techniques from many disciplines. The MCB program encompasses basic research to discover the fundamentals of how cancer cells develop and grow, and translational research to develop new therapeutics.
