The Division has an extensive basic research program that emphasizes molecular biology and conducts department-sponsored and federally sponsored research in several areas. The research programs of each faculty member are robust with interest and reknowned collaborators.  Find links to all publications on each faculty member's biosketch page. Here's a brief outline of recent publications:

Each faculty member is also involved in a wide variety of clinical and translational research projects, some of which are conducted as a part of our SPORE grants in GI and breast cancer. There are also a wide variety of projects in all areas of basic cancer biology which are being conducted by faculty members in other clinical and basic science departments.
