Basic and Translational Research
In nearly three decades of scientific research, under the leadership of scientist Ricardo Brentani, A.C.Camargo Cancer Center has made significant contributions to basic oncology, particularly in the areas of molecular/cell biology, genetics and genomics of cancer. The continuous search for meaningful findings drives the activities of basic and translational research. In 2011, 188 scientific papers were published in international high-impact scientific journals, in addition to more than 100 presentations at international events and over 200 presentations at events in Brazil.
The projects coordinated by scientists and physicians are funded by national and international agencies. Today, CIPE A.C.Camargo is the coordinator of the National Institute of Science and Technology in Oncogenomics - INCITO (Instituto Nacional de Ciência e Tecnologia em Oncogenômica) - a project funded by CNPq and, in the state of São Paulo, by FAPESP.
International collaborations, such as that with MD Anderson Cancer Center (University of Texas) and the U.S. National Cancer Institute (NCI), contribute to the exchange of scientists, researchers, physicians and students.
