Our Science – Centers of Excellence

The NCI Intramural Research Program (IRP), which includes the Center for Cancer Research and the Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics, has established five Centers of Excellence that are built upon CCR's existing structures and expertise in these areas:

Chromosome Biology

Genitourinary Malignancies Center of Excellence

HIV/AIDS & Cancer Virology


Integrative Cancer Biology and Genomics

Each Center serves as a locus of resources and infrastructure aimed at accelerating the discovery, development, and delivery of interventions for preventing, diagnosing, and treating cancer and HIV/AIDS. The head of each Center serves as a steward of resources, promotes interactions among NCI investigators and with other NIH Institutes, extramural scientists, and the private sector, and leads new initiatives and projects in interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary translational research.
