Precision Cancer Medicine: Getting a Crystal-Clear Vision of Cancer

By studying cancer cells at the molecular level, OSUCCC – James experts get a much crisper vision of what'sfueling those particular cells to grow and spread. Read More

By studying cancer cells at the molecular level (genomics), the OSUCCC – James experts get a much crisper vision of what's fueling those particular cells to grow and spread. This, in turn, enables them to create a treatment plan with highly targeted therapies tailored specifically for that patient's cancer. Read More

Using Genomics to Improve Lung Cancer Treatment

Genomics – the study of the genetic makeup of an organism – helps researchers and oncologists pinpoint why there is no routine lung cancer. Read More

Genomics – the study of the genetic makeup of an organism – helps researchers and oncologists pinpoint why there is no routine lung cancer. Every lung cancer has a unique set of genetic abnormalities, and studying an individual’s genomics allows experts to gain insights into that person's unique cancer. Read More

Sub-Specialized Expertise in the New Home of The James

When you hear the words, “You have cancer,” it can be a devastating and scary time. Read More

When you hear the words, “You have cancer,” it can be a devastating and scary time. Fortunately, the new home of the James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute, opening in December 2014, will offer the community a shift in the way we treat cancer.“Cancer has changed so much just in the last few years,” says Michael A. Caligiuri, MD, director of Ohio State’s Comprehensive Cancer Center and CEO of The James. “It's no longer just what organ type is affected - breast, colon, lung - it's also understanding the molecular basis of the cancer."
