Molecular Oncology Department

Message from the Chair: 

The Department of Molecular Oncology at Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute uses cutting-edge technologies and innovative mouse models to conduct cancer research centered on five broad themes: gene expression & signal transduction, mouse models of human cancer, epigenetics, systems oncology, and cancer therapeutics. Our laboratories are primarily housed in the Vincent Stabile Research Building, a modern laboratory facility at Moffitt with state-of-the-art core facilities and a vivarium equipped with surgical and imaging suites for the development of preclinical models of cancer. These facilities aid in forming collaborations with other basic and translational research departments and the clinic at Moffitt Cancer Center. In addition to our research, our department has a strong commitment to education and preparing the next generation of cancer researchers for the challenges ahead. Our departmental activities include opportunities for postdoctoral fellows and predoctoral students to hone their skills and enable them to reach the next step in their careers. Come see what we have to offer….
