Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences

Molecular and Viral Carcinogenesis and Cancer Immunology

Master
Content

Program faculty are studying mechanisms of viral-induced oncogenesis, and how immune biology and related microenvironment changes affect cancer oncogenesis, tumor biology and metastasis, with a particular focus on cell signaling, tumor immune surveillance, immune suppression, cancer immunotherapy, viral replication and oncology, leukemia, microvascular inflammation and tumor microenvironment control of immune responses.

Our researchers are also closely aligned with the NCI-funded Dan L Duncan Comprehensive Cancer Center (DLDCCC) at Baylor College of Medicine which focuses on basic and translational cancer research as well as clinical research and clinical trials. The DLDCCC offers an educational program including seminars and other special events and houses core laboratories that provide expertise and cutting-edge services (from acquiring human tissues to mouse modeling and full-service approaches to genomic, protein and metabolomics analyses, including informatics analysis of big data sets) to Immunology & Microbiology Program faculty and students. The cutting-edge research programs of our program faculty together with DLDCCC resources allow us to train students in many facets of infectious agents and immune system effects on cancer initiation and progression.
