Our insights into gene therapy, recombinant DNA technology, biology and other fields have made us a world leader in creating greater understanding of cancer, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatening diseases.
We’re one of only 45 Comprehensive Cancer Centers in the country, the highest designation awarded by the National Cancer Institute to institutions leading the way in cancer research, treatment, prevention and education.
Driving progress toward miraculous cures means providing investigators and laboratory teams access to top-flight support services and state-of-the-art equipment.
Turning breakthrough science into widespread treatment demands working closely with our inventors and researchers to leverage the right strategies for commercially advancing their innovations.
The Irell & Manella Graduate School of Biological Sciences trains students to apply their talents and creativity toward advancing our knowledge of deadly diseases…and finding cures.
If your monthly breast self-exam happens in the shower — sporadically — and involves a quick once-over of your breasts, you may be missing some important elements of an effective exam. City of Hope breast surgeon Dr. Laura Kruper offers tips for a more effective exam.
Something as simple as wearing a physical activity wristband, not unlike a Fitbit, to count steps could also be an invaluable tool in monitoring the functional recovery time of surgery patients, and potentially detecting any post-surgery complications sooner rather than later.
Science doesn’t always start in the lab. Sometimes collaborations come together over cocktails in Costa Rica. This is how City of Hope cancer biologist Mei Kong Ph.D., and Caltech neuroscientist Viviana Gradinaru, Ph.D., started a project that could change the approach to killing cancerous tumors.
We worked with Steve Spangler of Sick! Science to visualize and better understand the science of immunotherapy being done at City of Hope. Learn how to use slime to represent the body’s immune system and a magnet to represent cancer.
Graduate student Dongrui Wang’s poster presentation at the 19th annual American Society of Gene & Cell Therapy was selected as the conference’s Outstanding Poster Presentation for his research initiatives in gene and cell therapy. Here Wang talks about what motivated him to pursue a career in science, what keeps him inspired and the innovative research he is working on at City of Hope.
