What we learn globally will help us locally!

  • Cancers that are currently less frequent, yet fatal, in the United States are abundant in certain other regions of the globe.
  • The diversity of our global population expands our horizons with important research questions on cancer that will help the population of the specific country as well as expanding our knowledge of these cancers.
  • Conducting clinical trials internationally enables us to conduct translational and basic research that will have an impact globally -- including in the United States!
