The UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center's research organization is primarily based on scientific programs that gather together scientists and engineers from varied disciplines interested in a related group of cancer challenges.
These programs have identified, funded leaders, explicit themes, and regular meetings and/or retreats.
Programs are designed to foster collaboration in research projects, publications, and applications for extramural funding. Intra-programmatic collaboration is enhanced through inter-programmatic collaboration.
Most cancer center members belong to one or more scientific programs including:
- Biomedical Technology
- Cancer Therapeutics
- Comparative Oncology
- Molecular Oncology
- Population Sciences and Health Disparities
- Prostate Cancer
