Center for Cancer and Developmental Biology
The Center for Cancer and Developmental Biology promotes teaching and research in areas concerned with cancer and developmental biology. It supports courses and workshops for our students, K-12 teachers, and the community and is an information center for the public in the areas of cancer and developmental biology. It provides research experiences for hundreds of undergraduate and graduate students, helping them gain admission to prestigious advanced programs at other institutions.
The center supports: research programs for over 100 students per year, symposia and abstract publishing for hundreds of K-12 students and teachers per year in a Library of Congress listed journal that is now on the worldwide web, the editorship of an international 60 year old Elsevier journal that publishes hundreds of papers each year. The center has a record of distinguished student outcomes that have led to 26 awards and honors including a U.S. Presidential Award, presented at the White House, for center director Steve Oppenheimer.
