Detecting cancer at its earliest stages is fundamental for early treatment and increasing cure rates.
Harnessing the body’s own defenses to recognize cancer cells and destroy them.
A customizable approach that allows researchers and healthcare professionals to connect practice to policy through non-traditional partnerships among different sectors of the healthcare community.
Although we often define cancer by the organ in which it arises, there are over 100 types of unique cancers. Research at UW propels our understanding of your individual tumor so we can personalize your therapy.
Researchers at UW have pioneered advances in the delivery of radiation precisely to the tumor and not normal tissue.
Understanding what proteins drive cancer is critical and such advances will lead to cures.
Understanding and predicting how tumors become resistant to different therapies is vital to prolonging life and curing patients.
Over 25% of all cancers are caused by viral infection and UW researchers are leading the way in methods for detection, treatment and prevention of viral driven cancer.
