Legorreta Cancer Center at Brown University
Rhode Island, USA
Our members represent Brown University, the Lifespan Cancer Institute, the affiliated hospitals, the Warren Alpert Medical School, and Brown’s School of Public Health and School of Engineering, among others. Our goal is to understand genetic and environmental risk of cancer, to prevent cancer whenever possible including by avoiding tobacco smoke, excessive sun exposure, alcohol, and cancer vaccination.
We are working to understand how cancer develops, grows and metastasizes, and to develop new biomarkers and treatments for patients in a personalized way that addresses their needs ranging from risk through survivorship. Our goal is to impact on cancer in Rhode Island and beyond through outstanding research programs that uphold the high standards of excellence adopted by the National Cancer Institute.
