Cancer Research

From the discovery of the tumor suppressor gene p53 to the identification of metastasis genes in breast cancer, Princeton has always had a strong tradition in cutting edge cancer research. As we advance toward personalized medicine in oncology, Princeton is uniquely positioned to provide cross-disciplinary training for the next generation of cancer biologists. Our research groups use state-of-the-art technologies to address important scientific questions relevant to cancer, including growth control and differentiation, cell signaling, genomic instability, cancer metabolism, tumor-stromal interactions, and metastasis. Training experience in cancer biology is further enhanced by the close collaborations among our laboratories with colleagues in the nearby Cancer Institute of New Jersey. We encourage you to explore the exciting and dynamic training opportunities in cancer biology offered by our diverse research groups.
