Disease-Oriented Teams and Centers of Excellence

The Comprehensive Cancer Center (CCC) organizes its clinical research activities into 12 Disease-Oriented Teams (DOTs). The 12 DOTs are Brain, Breast, Gastrointestinal, Genitourinary, Geriatrics, Gynecology, Head & Neck, Hematologic Malignancies, Lung, Melanoma, Pediatrics, and Sarcoma. DOTs include members of the CCC basic science Programs and the Cancer Prevention and Control Program, in addition to Clinical Research Program members to promote inter-programmatic collaborations and translational science. 

COEs at the CCC serve as the conduit to expand DOT research activities when the level of translational research is large enough to warrant planning of multi-investigator grants, Program Project Grants (PPGs), and Specialized Programs of Research Excellence (SPORE) grant applications.  The Brain Tumor Center of Excellence is an example of such translational research thrust.
