Cancer Pathobiology Research

Cancer pathobiology is an integrative discipline seeking insights into molecular and cellular mechanisms responsible for all aspects of cancerous growth. Investigators in the Division of Cancer Pathobiology and their colleagues in the Divisions of Cell Pathology, Hematology, Hematopathology, Genomic Diagnostics, and Oncology use cutting-edge in vitro and in vivo approaches to characterize structural and functional abnormalities that drive cancer initiation, progression, and response to treatment. Thus their discoveries have strong potential for being translated into the clinic and affecting well-being of pediatric cancer patients.
