Research

A central part of the mission of the Fisher Center is to conduct state-of-the-art research on the prevention, treatment and management of familial cancers in order to improve the medical and quality of life outcomes of men and women at risk for cancer. The Fisher Center advances our understanding of familial cancer through a multidisciplinary approach calling on specialists in genetic counseling, medical oncology, epidemiology, cancer prevention, and basic science.  Our team is committed to reducing the impact of familial cancers worldwide. 

This section provides information for individuals who are participating in genetic counseling and testing studies. We also provide information about the Fisher Center pilot grant program and highlight our published work related to clinical cancer genomics.
