Cancer Radiology: Radiation Oncology encompasses all aspects of research that impacts on the treatment of cancer using radiation. Radiation can be given as a curative modality, either alone or in combination with surgery and/or chemotherapy. It may also be used palliatively, to relieve symptoms in patients with incurable cancers. The Radiotherapy/radiation therapy is broadly segmented into Teleradiotherapy, Brachy-radiotherapy and Metabolic Radiotherapy. Nuclear medicine is a branch of medicine that uses radiation to provide information about the functioning of a person's specific organs or to treat disease. Medical imaging is the technique and process of creating visual representations of the interior of a body for clinical analysis and medical intervention, as well as visual representation of the function of some organs or tissues.

A cancer biomarker is an element or procedure that indicates the presence of cancer in the body. A biomarker may be any molecule released by presence a tumor or a specific indication of the body to the presence of cancer. Cancer biomarkers are usually biological molecules found in blood, other body fluids, or tissues that are a sign of a normal or abnormal process, or of a condition or disease.

Research on nanotechnology cancer therapy extends beyond drug delivery into the creation of new therapeutics available only through use of nanomaterial properties. Although small compared to cells, nanoparticles are large enough to encapsulate many small molecule compounds, which can be of multiple types. At the same time, the relatively large surface area of nanoparticle can be functionalized with ligands, including small molecules, DNA or RNA strands, peptides, aptamers or antibodies. These ligands can be used for therapeutic effect or to direct nanoparticle fate in vivo. These properties enable combination drug delivery, multi-modality treatment and combined therapeutic and diagnostic, known as “theranostic,” action. The physical properties of nanoparticles, such as energy absorption and re-radiation, can also be used to disrupt diseased tissue, as in laser ablation and hyperthermia applications
Clinical Cancer Research is a peer-reviewed medical journal on oncology, including the cellular and molecular characterization, prevention, diagnosis, and therapy of human cancer, medical and hematological oncology, radiation therapy, pediatric oncology, pathology, surgical oncology, and clinical genetics. The applications of the disciplines of pharmacology, immunology, cell biology, and molecular genetics to intervention in human cancer are also included. One of the main interests of Clinical Cancer Research is on clinical trials that evaluate new treatments together with research on pharmacology and molecular alterations or biomarkers that predict response or resistance to treatment.
Cancer Vaccines generally either treats existing cancer or prevents development of a cancer. Cancer treatment vaccines are made up of cancer cells, parts of cells, or pure antigens. Sometimes a patient’s own immune cells are removed and exposed to these substances in the lab to create the vaccines.

Predictive cancer biomarkers hold the promise of early cancer detection, personalized treatment, and accurate patient monitoring. Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Ninth Annual Predictive Cancer Biomarkers symposium will focus on current research regarding tumor pathways and biomarker discovery, the progress toward clinical applications such as early detection and therapy monitoring, and case studies focusing on clinical utility and actionability
Immunotherapy is treatment that uses your body's own immune system to help fight cancer. Get information about the different types of immunotherapy and the types of cancer they are used to treat.
- Track 9-1Monoclonal antibodies: which are drugs that are designed to bind to specific targets in the body. They can cause an immune response that destroys cancer cells
- Track 9-2Adoptive cell transfer: which is a treatment that attempts to boost the natural ability of your T cells to fight cancer. T cells are a type of white blood cell and part of the immune system. Researchers take T cells from the tumor. They then isolate the T
- Track 9-3Cytokines: which are proteins that are made by your body’s cells. They play important roles in the body’s normal immune responses and also in the immune system’s ability to respond to cancer. The two main types of cytokines used to treat cancer are
- Track 9-4Treatment Vaccines: which work against cancer by boosting your immune system’s response to cancer cells. Treatment vaccines are different from the ones that help prevent disease.
Cancer is treated in several ways, depending on each person's medical condition and type of cancer. Common treatments involve chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Other treatments include surgery and biological therapies.

The fundamental goal of Genomics and Epigenetics Division is to understand genome biology and its impact on disease. Genomics is the study of information that is encoded within the full DNA sequence complement of an organism. Epigenetics is the study of how DNA is organised and regulated in the cell to promote a stably heritable phenotype without alterations in the DNA sequence.
Growing prevalence of oncologic cases, constant technological advancements in diagnostics, and increasing demand for effective screening tests are some of the prime factors spurring the demand for screening tools across the world. In addition, rising awareness and supportive government initiatives are some additional factors that are anticipated to boost the growth of the sector during the forecast period.
A thorough and accurate cancer diagnosis is the first step in developing an individualized cancer treatment plan. When you first visit one of our hospitals, we will perform a complete array of diagnostic tests to accurately confirm your diagnosis and plan your individualized treatment.
As successful as researchers have been in using nanotechnology to address and solve many important questions in the laboratory, the ultimate measure of the field’s success lies in the translation of research discoveries to the clinic. Currently, multiple nanotechnology-enabled diagnostic and therapeutic agents are in clinical trials, and many more are nearing that goal.
