Cancer Research

Lab research experiment with pipettes

University of Iowa researchers affiliated with Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center work to discover more about the origins, prevention, development and treatment of cancer. They are focused on translating research advances in the laboratory to advances in patient care. They are motivated by the principle of "Never Stop Asking®."

The university is fortunate to have many investigators who are pursuing innovative approaches to treating cancer in the laboratory and in clinical settings. This translation of laboratory investigations to patient care is one of the most exciting features of a university-based cancer center.
