The Brooklyn College Cancer Center (CommUnity Outreach, Research and Education) BCCC-CURE conducts research to understand the causes and mechanisms of cancer and to develop potential treatments for cancer patients.
We are also interested in developing tools and computational methods useful in medical diagnoses. Patient well-being and cancer prevention are also areas of interest for BCCC-CURE researchers. As the focus of BCCC-CURE is on Brooklyn residents, we aim to open the possibility of new modes of translational cancer research in the borough through partnerships with Brooklyn and NYC medical centers. Translational research is the “bench-to-bedside” model that transforms the findings of fundamental research into actual medical practice and treatment.
A number of our faculty members are funded by the National Institutes of Health and other agencies and private foundations to conduct cancer or cancer-related research. Cancer researchers at Brooklyn College collaborate with a number of prestigious cancer centers, medical schools, and universities in New York, across the U.S., and overseas.
The three main areas of research at BCCC-CURE are:
- Cancer Biology & Biochemistry
- Drug Development and Delivery
- Patient Oriented Research
