Container with pillsThe overall goal of the Cancer Therapeutics Program (CTP) is to promote interactions along the continuum of basic, preclinical, and clinical research, to develop innovative approaches to drug treatment of solid tumors and hematologic malignancies.

Specifically, the CTP aims to:

  1. Identify new anticancer agents;
  2. Understand the mechanism(s) of action of new and existing anticancer drugs; and
  3. Optimize schedules and doses of antineoplastic drugs.
