Therapeutics Discovery is advancing cancer care
At the core of MD Anderson’s approach to patient care is our pioneering work in basic science, translational research and clinical studies. Like many institutions around the globe, MD Anderson has suspended our laboratory research and limited our clinical trials in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, before the pause in research, our experts made significant advances in cancer prevention and treatment. They will be sharing their findings at the AACR Virtual Annual Meetings I and II. Keep up with the latest and learn about our other practice-changing research below.
Our researchers are resilient. Their resolve to understand more about cancer continues to drive their commitment to learning, collaborating, educating and mentoring. Their work will resume, and we will make progress toward seeing a world without cancer.

MD Anderson News
The Therapeutics Discovery division at MD Anderson was created to eliminate the bottlenecks that hamper traditional drug development.
Consisting of more than 100 dedicated cancer researchers, doctors, drug developers and scientific experts, our team develops small molecule drugs, biologics and cellular therapies. We're inspired by the needs of our patients and guided by the expertise of the center’s clinicians. We don't bring the “bench to bedside” – we start with the bench at the bedside – with each patient and their cancer.
Education and Training
Education is at the core of our work to end cancer. Through our comprehensive and competitive programs, we are committed to training the next generation to join the fight.
