The result? A history of breakthrough innovations helping patients here and around the world, with even more to come in the years ahead.
The major basic science departments of Beckman Research Institute of City of Hope conduct a diverse array of leading-edge scientific inquiries and research. The departments include internationally-acclaimed scientists and support staff who are among the best in their respective fields, pursuing a diverse range of research.
Uncovering the basic mechanisms of genetics, gene expression and function, signaling pathways, mutagenesis, DNA repair and epigenetics as they relate to the development and progression of cancer.
Studies here are focused on discovering the fundamental mechanisms of DNA replication and DNA damage repair during cell growth.
Offering a multidisciplinary research and training environment in neurobiology with a particular focus on developmental aspects of the nervous system.
A concentration on vaccine research and therapeutic strategies, also touching as basic immunology and tumor related research.
Pioneering work that’s harnessing the power of the human immune system, resulting in more powerful, less toxic cures for patients.
Consisting of several divisions, this department enables collaboration in clinical and basic science research throughout the Medical Center and Beckman Research Institute, including study design, data quality and training, and computational statistical analysis.
Our Lymphoma Specialized Program of Research Excellence (SPORE) is developing translational studies to improve the detection and therapy of Hodgkin's and non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma.
The Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology studies an array of biological systems and problems, focusing on the mechanisms regulating expression of genetic information at both the transcriptional level and the post-transcriptional level.
With a dual focus on immunology and structural biology, principal investigators here are researching cell and tumor immunology and structure analysis.
Scientist here are investigating the mechanisms underlying cancer and other diseases to develop novel molecular therapeutics.
Researchers across multiple divisions are targeting what causes cancer, how to prevent people from getting cancer, and how to improve the quality of life of cancer survivors.
By improving the understanding of leukemia stem cells, researchers are working at developing cures for leukemia and other hematologic malignancies.
