About Norris Cotton Cancer Center:

Norris Cotton Cancer Center, one of only 71 NCI-designated Cancer Centers is a world leader in cancer research. Our research themes are divided into four main programs:

•  Cancer Population Sciences: focuses on prevention and control research, seeking to identify nutritional, environmental, and lifestyle factors that may cause cancer. We help patients understand their cancer risk and work to prevent cancer-causing behaviors, such as tobacco use by children.

•  Cancer Biology and Therapeutics: studies basic mechanisms that underlie cancer development and progression. Our scientists are developing new drugs and therapeutic interventions to stop cancers in the very earliest stages of growth.

•  Immunology and Cancer Immunotherapy: develops new immunotherapeutic strategies for the treatment of cancer by learning how to engage the body’s own immune system to fight cancer.

•  Translational Engineering in Cancer: uses imaging, radiobiology, biophysics, and engineering approaches to develop new cancer diagnostic and treatment strategies and devices.
