Stanford chemists develop new technique for improving stomach cancer surgery results
Chemists and pathologists have collaborated on a method that uses chemical analysis to improve the odds of detecting cancer cells during surgery to prevent patients from needing to return.
Among the research institutions NCI funds across the United States, it currently designates 68 as Cancer Centers. Largely based in research universities, these facilities are home to many of the NCI-supported scientists who conduct a wide range of intense, laboratory research into cancer’s origins and development. The Cancer Centers Program also focuses on trans-disciplinary research, including population science and clinical research. The centers’ research results are often at the forefront of studies in the cancer field.
