number of innovative programs occupy the Center for Biomedical
Discovery, including the Institute for Pediatric Molecular Sciences.
This institute--the first of its kind in the country--is exclusively
devoted to improving children's health through organized, team-based
research of how genes influence disease. The institute introduces an
entirely new model of research that harnesses genomics, biophysics,
physiology, and clinical studies to develop more advanced and effective
treatments for pediatric diseases.
the Center for Biomedical Discovery, researchers work together to
create tailor-made cancer treatments specifically designed for each
patient. The facility is also home to the Center for Metastasis
Research. Although metastasis is known as a leading cause of cancer
deaths, most research to date has been focused on treating primary
cancers. In the Center for Metastasis Research, is a novel emphasis on
the exploration of metastasis--which requires a very different approach
than treating primary cancers. This center is one of only six centers in
the country focusing on the study of metastasis.
