Research Programs

The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center (OSUCCC) has five highly interactive cancer research programs. Membership includes 293 scientists from 11 of the 15 colleges at The Ohio State University in one or more of these research programs. Through the five programs, the work of members includes basic laboratory studies, translational research and clinical trials.

While each program focuses on a different area of cancer research, the comprehensive cancer center promotes a strong culture of collaboration. Interprogrammatic collaborations, collaborations with researchers in these Ohio State colleges and collaborations with researchers at other cancer centers and institutions are encouraged. As a result, researchers can tackle complex and important questions that require broad, interdisciplinary expertise.

The research programs continue to grow in scientific and clinical strength through recruitment and retention of some of the world’s brightest minds in cancer research. The clear focus on collaborative and translational research, and the availability of state-of-the-art technologies and expertise provided by 21 cores and shared resources, enables OSUCCC researchers to conduct high-quality research that leads to world-class discoveries, changes in clinical practice and improvements in patient care.
