Programs

Where You Are:

Moffitt’s five research programs consist of multidisciplinary teams of more than 160 faculty members focused on the Cancer Center Support Grant (CCSG). A program leader oversees each program, and members represent multiple departments. Membership to programs is a distinct and dynamic process, separate from academic rank and appointment. These programs are highly collaborative, translational and span multiple disease sites. Each program focuses on an overall scientific theme and specific aims, which together provide Moffitt’s strong, multidimensional approach to defeating cancer.

Cancer Biology and Evolution

Over the last few years, the Molecular Oncology & Drug Discovery (MODD) Program developed an increasing emphasis on research in the areas of tumor evolution, the microenvironment, mathematical modeling and tumor ecology. The Center’s mathematicians have played an important role in leading this new direction. At the same time, breakthroughs in genomics and personalized medicine led to the structural biologists and chemists in the program to increasingly work closely with members of the Experimental Therapeutics program on drug development and on systems level views of pathways and drugs. READ MORE

Cancer Epidemiology

The Cancer Epidemiology (CE) Program contributes to reducing cases of cancer by gaining better knowledge of the causes of the disease and translating knowledge into effective, early detection and prevention. READ MORE

Chemical Biology and Molecular Medicine

Over the last few years, the Molecular Oncology & Drug Discovery (MODD) Program developed an increasing emphasis on research in the areas of tumor evolution, the microenvironment, mathematical modeling and tumor ecology. READ MORE

Health Outcomes and Behavior

The interdisciplinary faculty in the Department of Health Outcomes and Behavior (HOB) conduct research related to the prevention, detection, and control of cancer through the study of health-related behaviors, health care practices, and health-related quality of life. Specific examples of research areas include tobacco dependence, cancer-related health disparities, quality of life among cancer patients and survivors, and health economics related to cancer-related interventions. READ MORE

Immunology

The Immunology Program members are probing the mechanisms of immune activation and evasion in tumor bearers, with the purpose of making an impact in the field by introducing new strategies that will benefit cancer patients. READ MORE
