Research and Patient Care

Researchers in the Division of Medical Oncology are nationally and internationally known for their work in cancer research. They collaborate with colleagues in their own division, institution and many institutions globally.
Our research focus centers on the development and application of experimental therapeutics and targeted agents for future cancer patient treatment. This includes testing new drugs in models systems starting with in-vitro cell culture and moving to in vivo models. New compounds are developed within the Division as well as through collaboration with pharmaceutical companies.

Our researchers continue to study the mechanisms of resistance developed over time by patients to certain drugs and also studies of the innate resistance in some patients to certain drugs are a central focus.

Many exciting strides are being made in the fight against cancer and we remain passionate in our quest to succeed in the battle.

Got Cancer?

Hearing the words "you have cancer" can be very frightening, often followed by feelings of shook, numbness and disbelief. The medical terms can be confusing. It is often felt by cancer patients that they aren't being heard or understood.
The Cancer Information & Counseling Line (CICL) is a nationally recognized service that offers free telephone counseling for people with cancer, as well as their friends and family members. This unique, free service is provided by the AMC Cancer Fund, an affiliate of the University of Colorado Cancer Center.

What is a Clinical Trial?

Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. They are the final step in a years-long process that begins with research in a lab and animal testing. Many treatments used today are the result of past clinical trials.
