  • Center for Translational Cancer Research

    ​326 Wolf Hall
    Newark, DE 19716

    Phone: 302-831-6050
    Fax: 302-831-2281
    <div>In Delaware, the common desire for the creation of a translational cancer research effort among faculty and clinicians recruited to the State over the past decade and has, in essence, created a clinical and translational cancer effort “without walls”. The thriving effort in translational cancer research involves individuals from 4 institutions - University of Delaware, A.I. duPont Hospital for Children/Nemours, Christiana Care Health System/Helen F. Graham Cancer Center, and the Delaware Biotechnology Institute - who share a common vision to improve cancer research and delivery. Our mission is to establish a pipeline of translational cancer researchers and clinicians by developing a program that starts at the undergraduate level and continues to provide training throughout the graduate and post-graduate levels. We also seek to build research partnerships constituting teams of clinicians, biologists,&nbsp;engineers, chemists, and computer scientists to attack cancer-related problems.</div>
  • Interdisciplinary Science Learning Laboratories

    221 Academy St., Rm. 402A
    Newark, DE  19716
    Phone: 302-831-6400
    Fax: 302-831-6477
  • Medical & Dental Scholars

    401 Academy Street
    Newark, DE 19716

    Phone: 302-831-4949
    <div>The Medical Scholars Program integrates faculty and courses at both the University of Delaware and Jefferson Medical College. By studying new academic subjects and gaining practical experience in areas now underemphasized in medical education, students understand health care in sociocultural, political, and economic as well as biological terms. The curriculum ranges from traditional medical subjects to courses in humanities, social sciences, economics, and political science. Small group discussions, problem-based instruction, and hands-on experience encourage students to become critical thinkers, problem solvers, and effective communicators.</div>

  • Cleft-related genes

    Biologist Salil Lachke is working to develop an open-access database that researchers can use to identify genes potentially linked to orofacial clefting, a malformation that is a common birth defect.

  • Peering into cells

    Researchers used magic-angle-spinning nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy to reveal for the first time the structure--atom by atom--of an essential protein bound to a microtubule in a cell.

  • Do the math

    The new Mathematical Sciences Learning Laboratory provides a dedicated space for innovative classes, tutoring, advising and testing, all designed to help students succeed in basic, foundational math courses.
