Welcome from the Director of the Oncology Research Institute

Oncology Research Institute is committed to the discovery of the causes of cancer. These observations will translate into innovative cancer therapies. Our teams of dedicated researchers interface with both clinicians and patients to develop innovative programs for cancer treatment.

The Institute's scientific disciplines are organized under programs in:

  1. signal transduction and experimental therapeutics;
  2. tumor immunology and immunotherapy;
  3. gene regulation and epigenetics; and
  4. stem cell biology. 

These programs span the multiple areas of clinical excellence in the Cardinal Bernardin Cancer Center. Ultimately, our goal is to work in a multi-disciplinary setting to provide the best available care for cancer patients and foster innovative and cutting-edge inquiry.
