Comprehensive Cancer Center Research

The commitment to cancer research is why so many cancer survivors successfully fight their disease. Patients undergoing treatment hope that cancer researchers will find the keys to unlock the particular mysteries of their cancers.

Because research brings hope, basic science, clinical and public health researchers at the Comprehensive Cancer Center of Wake Forest University collaborate to answer complex questions that lead to promising new treatments and therapies.

National Cancer Institute (NCI) Designated Cancer Center

By demonstrating depth and breadth in research, the Cancer Center earned the National Cancer Institute’s Comprehensive designation, the only Cancer Center in western North Carolina with this designation. Further, there are only 47 NCI Comprehensive Cancer Centers in the United States.

Multidisciplinary and Translational Research

Our research programs are structured to optimize multidisciplinary and translational research. Our researchers work together to take the most promising discoveries from the laboratory into the clinic for the benefit of our patients and the cancer community as a whole.
