Research Projects

With continuous improvement in cancer detection and treatment-induced tumor control, the number of cancer cures is increasing rapidly.  However, cancer patientes and surviors suffer from side effects, both during and after the completion of cancer therapy.  The research projects in the Center for Studies of Host Response to Cancer Therapy are designed to examine the mechanisms by which various types of cancer therapy cause toxicity and to develop strategies to prevent or reverse these side effects.  The Center will promote the initiation and development or expansion of unique, innovative state-of-the-art biomedical and behavioral research at UAMS.
