Tumor Progression and Recurrence
The Tumor Progression and Recurrence Program is a highly interactive group of 31 faculty members in the Wake Forest Baptist Comprehensive Cancer Center (WFBCCC). Our Program Members represent many different departments and sections across Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, Wake Forest University, and the VT-WFU School of Biomedical Engineering and Sciences.
Goals of Research
goals of the Tumor Progression and Recurrence (TPR) Program are to
understand the molecular mechanisms that promote tumor progression and
recurrence and use this knowledge to develop novel strategies to treat cancer,
particularly those with high rates of recurrence, relentless progression, or
high incidence/high mortality in the WFBCCC catchment area.
goals will be achieved by the Program members’ research around two central
- Cellular signaling
- The tumor microenvironment
