mci_research.jpgWhile research appears to take place "behind the scenes" to the average person, at the Mitchell Cancer Institute, research is at the forefront in the fight to find new ways to cure and prevent cancer. MCI's researchers provide the building blocks for tomorrow's clinical advances through investigation into the mechanisms and pathways involved in the development and progression of cancer.

MCI has built a robust, interactive and entrepreneurial training environment where investigators, physicians, physician-scientists, medical students, clinical fellows and Ph.D. graduate students work collaboratively, supported by state-of-the-art core laboratories and specialized equipment. Our Research Programs presently include Cancer Biology, Drug Discovery, DNA Repair, and Cancer Cell Death and Metabolism. Shared resources include a biospecimen repository (Biobank), mass spectroscopy and proteomics, advanced microscopy, flow cytometry, and high-throughput, image-based drug discovery. Research is competitively funded through NIH and DOD grants as well as state funds, foundations and endowments.
