About the Cancer Center
The BU-BMC Cancer Center’s mission is to provide high-quality patient care in combination with innovative research programs that will directly transform cancer management through the discovery of personalized approaches for cancer detection and treatment. Inherent in this vision is the focus on understanding the molecular events associated with cancer initiation and progression in high-risk populations, and the direct translation of these findings into the clinical realm.
To achieve this mission it is essential that the Cancer Center provide the bridge between the clinical oncology and biomedical research communities at Boston University. Each of the following institutions provide essential areas of expertise which are necessary for the success of the Cancer Center’s initiatives.
