Chief's Welcome

Welcome to the Division of Oncology, a center of excellence in patient care, medical education, and state-of-the-art research.

Mission Statement

The work of the Division of Oncology bridges the worlds of basic science, clinical diagnosis and the treatment of cancer. Our basic investigative activities concentrate on immunology, genetics/genomics, pharmacology, DNA repair and oncogene action. Our clinical science covers each cancer type; has a strong focus in clinical trials of new diagnostic and therapeutic approaches, and in correlative laboratory studies. Our work is supported by a portfolio of peer-reviewed grants, industrial agreements and research endowments.

Our faculty includes physicians and scientists who work on all forms of cancer and who are part of a larger community of scientists at Stanford University. Our education program in clinical oncology and in cancer research is training the next generation of leaders in the field.

As you navigate this site, you will meet our faculty and staff, learn about our training program, and gain an understanding of what we do in our clinics and laboratories.
