Our innovative approach to research leads to making discoveries that have a major impact in the fight against cancer.
All cancers are the result of genetic alterations in one cell of our body, which results in said cell becoming abnormal, which then leads to a disorderly cell proliferation and tumor formation.
More than 200 different types of cancer can be caused by a number of different mutations producing specific anomalies at the molecular and cellular level.
Traditional therapeutic approaches such a chemotherapy and radiation therapy are nonspecific and are often accompanied by significant adverse side effects.
IRIC Investigators are working towards acquiring new knowledge to better understand the mechanisms of cancer and to develop personalized therapeutic approaches.
