Research Programs

Fundamental basic laboratory, clinical, and population research are the foundation for all of Karmanos Cancer Institute's Research Programs, which are ultimately directed toward the prevention, early detection or treatment of cancer.

Our Programs include: Tumor Biology and Microenvironment (TBM), Molecular Imaging (MI), Molecular Therapeutics (MT) and Population Studies and Disparities Research (PSDR).

The cancer focus is comprehensive, and encompasses etiology, epidemiology, and prevention, early detection (particularly focused on minority populations), basic and translational research, clinical care (based upon multidisciplinary teams) and clinical research (including investigator-initiated and cooperative group clinical trials).
