The mission of the Hamon Center for Therapeutic Oncology Research is “to develop and implement new ways to improve the prevention, early detection, diagnosis, prognostic assessment, and treatment of human cancer by performing interdisciplinary research that translates findings to and from the laboratory and the clinic.”

Hamon Center for Therapeutic Oncology Research’s current areas of research interest include: all different types of lung cancer (all stages), breast cancer, gynecologic malignancies, pediatric tumors, family cancer genetics, molecular early detection of cancer, microarray expression analysis of many genes in human cancers, testing of new drugs, tumor vaccines, gene therapy, identification of the role of dominant and recessive oncogenes and DNA repair genes, as well as autocrine/paracrine growth factors in the pathogenesis of human cancer.

UT Southwestern Medical Center’s Radiation Oncology Service specializes in cancers of the lung, thymus and esophagus, tumors of the brain and spinal cord, and brain metastases, tumors of the breast, cancer of the gastrointestinal tract, cancers of the urinary tract, male genital organs and prostate, cancers of the female genital tract and urethra, cancers of the head and neck, including thyroid and skin cancer, Lymphoma, multiple myeloma, Kaposi’s sarcoma, cancerous growth on the upper back, lower legs, head and neck, and soft tissue sarcoma, and tumors and hematologic malignancies in children.
