CSHL Cancer Center
The CSHL Cancer Center is a basic research facility committed to exploring the molecular basis of human cancer through a focused, multidisciplinary approach. The primary goal of this research is to improve the diagnosis and treatment of all major forms of the disease.
The CSHL Cancer Center is organized into three research Programs and ten Shared Resources. The Gene Regulation & Cell Proliferation Program focuses on the regulation of gene expression, cell division cycle control and chromosome structure in normal and cancer cells. The Signal Transduction Program focuses on signal transduction pathways and cell architecture in normal and cancer cells. The Cancer Genetics Program focuses on understanding the genetic basis of cancer, cancer progression and development of resistance to chemotherapy.
The Cancer Center Shared Resources provide specialized, state-of-the art equipment and techniques to support and facilitate cancer research at CSHL.
CSHL is one of approximately sixty institutions supported by the Cancer Centers Program of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and has been designated as an NCI Cancer Center since 1987.
