Research Programs

Wilmot’s investigators are organized into three multidisciplinary programs. With a framework of collaboration, scientists with diverse expertise study the mechanisms that fuel cancer, and the side effects and toxicities of cancer and its treatment. A major theme across all research programs is aging and cancer, leveraging longstanding strength at the University of Rochester and in response to the aging population in Wilmot’s 27-county catchment area. Woven through all Wilmot research is the Rochester ideal — that great science is linked to great teaching, and community service and engagement.
