|| The Basic Sciences Research Division of the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University includes faculty who investigate all aspects of cell function from misappropriated extracellular matrix to nuclear transcription factors, from biomaterials to cutting edge imaging techniques, and from prognostics, diagnostics, to therapeutics.
The mission of the Basic Science Research Division is to foster programs that lead to fundamental discoveries in cancer biology, and in cooperation with clinical programs, translate these discoveries into the development of new diagnostics and therapeutics. This mission will be accomplished through the research and activities of four programs: Cancer Epigenetics and Nuclear Dynamics (CEND); Tumor Environment and Metastasis (TEAM); Membranes, Organelles, and Metabolism (MOM); Cancer and Physical Sciences (CAPS).
This Division is led by Kathleen Green, PhD.
