A core mission of the Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute is to quickly turn research findings into safe, useful therapies. Cedars-Sinai researchers are seeking more effective ways to diagnose, treat and prevent many forms of cancer, including brain, breast, ovarian, prostate, lung, thyroid, head and neck, as well as leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma and sarcoma.

The institute supports basic and clinical research in many cancer-related areas, including blood cell development, gene cloning and stem cells.
