World-Class Researchers

Cancer is a complex set of diseases. Unlocking its mysteries demands the expertise and collaboration of scientists in many disciplines. Research at the UNM Cancer Center is therefore intensively interdisciplinary. We are home to four NCI-funded research programs composed of basic and clinical scientists from a wide range of disciplines: pathology, biology, genetics, computational science and statistical modeling, engineering and materials science, for example. Our scientists from across UNM partner with other cancer scientists at Sandia National Laboratories, Los Alamos National Laboratory, Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute and New Mexico State University.

The UNM Cancer Center currently has 102+ affiliated cancer researchers organized into four core research programs: Cancer Control and Disparities; Cancer Genetics, Epigenetics and Genomics; Translational Cancer Cell Biology and Signaling; and, Cancer Therapeutics: Technology, Discovery and Targeted Delivery.
