OSUCCC – James investigators make advances against cancer in research laboratories located in buildings around Ohio State’s Wexner Medical Center and across The Ohio State University campus. Most are just a short walk from Ohio State’s new James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute.
It is in these labs that Ohio State cancer researchers are working with graduate students, postdoctoral researchers and in some cases undergraduate students—to gain new knowledge about the causes, treatment, diagnosis and prevention of cancer. Their work ranges from basic molecular and cellular science to translational studies designed to find and bring new treatments quickly to patients, and to clinical trials that evaluate the safety and effectiveness of experimental treatments in patients. This research is reducing cancer incidence in human populations and improving the quality of life for cancer survivors.
