Center for Inflammation and Cancer

The Center for Inflammation and Cancer (CIC) was established in late 2008 and is one of several interdisciplinary research centers in the MD Anderson Institute for Basic Science. 

Inflammation has been closely linked with various cancers. The goal of the CIC is to provide an interactive platform across MD Anderson and the Texas Medical Center to study cross-regulation of inflammatory cell types and tumor microenvironments and the underlying molecular mechanisms using both animal models and patient samples.
