Our direct research into the causes, treatment, and prevention of cancer, AIDS,
and related diseases. From basic research into the molecular mechanisms of carcinogenesis
to pre-clinical investigation of potential new treatments, scientists at NCI-Frederick
are studying the origins of cancer—the genes, proteins, and signals involved in
initiation—and identifying possible targets to treat or prevent the disease.
Programs encompass investigators, organized within a specific field of research,
who are working together to solve a complex scientific problem.
