Title Cancer Biology & Genetics Program Our scientists study the molecular and genetic determinants of cancer predisposition, tumor development, and metastasis. Cell Biology Program MSK researchers explore the molecular mechanisms that control normal cell behavior and how these mechanisms are disrupted in cancer. Chemical Biology Program Our scientists use chemical principles to investigate cutting-edge topics in biology and medicine. Computational & Systems Biology Program The goal of our research is to build computer models that simulate biological processes, from the molecular level up to the organism as a whole. Developmental Biology Program Our investigators study the mechanisms that control cell proliferation, cell differentiation, tissue patterning, and tissue morphogenesis. Immunology Program Our research is geared toward understanding how the immune system functions in all its complexity and how it can be harnessed to fight disease. Molecular Biology Program Our research is directed at understanding how cell growth is regulated and how the integrity of the genome is maintained. Molecular Pharmacology Program Our research program serves as a conduit for bringing basic science discoveries to preclinical and clinical evaluation. Structural Biology Program Our researchers are dedicated to understanding biology at the structural and mechanistic levels, and aiding the development of new cancer therapies.
