Harnessing the body’s own defenses to recognize cancer cells and destroy them.
Researchers at UW have pioneered advances in the delivery of radiation precisely to the tumor and not normal tissue.
Detecting cancer at its earliest stages is fundamental for early treatment and increasing cure rates.
Understanding what proteins drive cancer is critical and such advances will lead to cures.
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.
Cancer is a disease of gene mutation. Understanding these mutations that drive cancer leads to a better awareness of how cancer arises and spreads to distant organs.
Although we often define cancer by the organ in which it arises, there are over 100 types of cancer with each one unique as the other. Research at UW propels our understanding of your individual tumor so we can personalize your therapy.
Understanding and predicting how tumors become resistant to different therapies is vital to prolonging life and curing patients.
