Personalized Advanced Therapy Research Centers
The Institute of Personalized Cancer Therapy fosters discoveries to enable physicians to determine the specific genetic and molecular abnormalities in each patient's cancer, and then to prescribe the appropriate therapy that targets those abnormalities. Primary work is designed to identify the laboratory discoveries with the greatest potential to lead to innovative anticancer agents, diagnostic mechanisms to identify key targets in a patient's tumor and predictive and prognostic markers. The institute involves research on new surgical and radiation therapy techniques, diagnostic imaging and pathologic evaluation of cancer as well as symptom management, palliative care and integrative medicine.
Centers involved in this work include:
