We think that by targeting epigenetic regulators
we can not only treat cancer but also make them more susceptible to chemotherapy.

Our warmest gratitude to Dr. Douglas Lowy, Acting Director of the National Cancer Institute, for visiting the Purdue Center for Cancer Research on June 29th to talk about the NCI's efforts in cancer research and how centers like ours are working together to solve the cancer problem. Together, we enable life!
The Purdue University Center for Cancer Research brings together the best minds from within Purdue University and beyond to study cancers where they start — inside the cell. Using the combined expertise of scientists from disciplines as varied as engineering and veterinary medicine, biology, and chemistry, the Center for Cancer Research promotes discovery into how cancers develop, progress and respond to treatment. Our work leads to the advancement of new medicines, early detection and diagnostic methods, more effective treatments, and highly efficient drug delivery systems.
Our goal is to provide our researchers with the resources they need to be successful in their work. In this section, you’ll find information about Center for Cancer Research membership, funding opportunities, shared resources, and how to acknowledge the Center for Cancer Research. Scientific progress takes money. Thanks to generous grantmakers and donors, the Center for Cancer Research has multiple funding opportunities for researchers. You’ll find a full listing on our Funding Page.
