Surgical Oncology Research

The surgical oncology research section is composed of four highly interactive research laboratories focused on developing novel cancer therapies with a bench to bedside translational approach. Areas of priority include:  cancer immunotherapy, tumor angiogenesis, and the development of human tumor models to predict drug efficacy. All four laboratories are highly integrated between themselves and with other research groups within the Hollings Cancer Center.
