Center for Cancer Research
Biomedical research has entered an exciting and vibrant era. As a result, cancer research demands a multidisciplinary approach that utilizes novel and innovative technologies to fight this devastating disease.
At the NYIT Center for Cancer Research, faculty from different schools within New York Tech work together and utilize multidisciplinary approaches to elucidate the mechanisms of cancer initiation and progression, develop innovative technologies for earlier cancer detection and diagnosis, and discover novel cancer therapy.
In addition, the Center also offers education programs in cancer related subjects to undergraduate, graduate, and medical students and helps to train future cancer researchers who will advance cancer research, as well as future physicians who will provide cutting edge and holistic treatment and care for cancer patients.
Innovation and creativity are encoded in the genes of New York Tech. The mission of the NYIT Center for Cancer Research is to integrate basic science, clinical medicine, and biomedical engineering to advance the early detection and effective treatment of cancers. In addition, the NYIT Center for Cancer Research also commits to promote undergraduate, graduate, and medical education in cancer biology and holistic cancer care to prepare the future cancer researchers and oncologists.
Members of NYIT-CCR include faculty from NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine, NYIT College of Arts and Sciences, and NYIT College of Engineering and Computing Sciences.
Faculty at the NYIT-CCR are actively pursuing cancer research in a variety of areas, including cancer development and prevention, cancer diagnosis and therapy, cancer epidemiology as well as clinical oncology.
