Our mission is to fast-track discoveries into clinical practice for improved cancer treatment and better outcomes for cancer patients.

Translational research

Translational research put simply is “bedside to bench to bedside” research.
We take issues that our doctors face in the clinic into the laboratory as our research questions and then translate the answers back to the clinic for improved patient care and management.
