Research at the Dan L Duncan Comprehensive Cancer Center
With the largest clinical genetics program housed at Baylor Clinic, our vision for a future of personalized medicine is quickly becoming a reality. As an academic-based center, the Dan L Duncan Comprehensive Cancer Center at Baylor College of Medicine offers cutting-edge, research-based treatment options such as using patients' own genetic makeup to identify their potential for cancer, prevent its onset, more effectively diagnose and treat the disease when it does occur, and one day, provide a cure.
We’re bringing our vision to life through the continued pursuit of genomic research and the rapid translation of new discoveries into improved patient care.
The Dan L Duncan Comprehensive Cancer Center has organized its research activities into seven programs to enhance interactions between investigators. Learn more about our research programs.
Inside Our Research Programs
The ever evolving fight against cancer
The Mechanisms in Cancer Evolution Program creates a gateway between clinicians and basic scientists who are working toward more precise testing, treatment and cures for cancer.
Dissecting the motor of cancer
Dr. Bert O'Malley's passion for understanding how human cells works leads to insight in developing new therapies to treat breast cancer.
Mapping cancer's genome
The goal of the nine-year Cancer Genome Atlas Project is to identify genetic changes and variations found in more than 20 types of cancer.
