The Dan L Duncan Comprehensive Cancer Center has organized its research activities into seven programs to enhance interactions between investigators.

These programs are supported by many sources of funding including philanthropy but are primarily funded through competitive research grants from the NCI and other institutes of the NIH.

Working Groups

The Duncan Cancer Center also has nine disease-oriented working groups focused on particular cancer types. These multi-disciplinary groups bring together clinicians and investigators to translate scientific findings into coordinated patient care. These groups may work within or across our formal research programs.  

  • Brain/Neuro-oncology
  • Gastrointestinal
  • Genitourinary/Prostate
  • Gynecological
  • Head and Neck
  • Hematological
  • Liver
  • Lung/Thoracic
  • Pancreatic
