Established in 1994, the Department of Oncological Sciences performs research and provides training with an emphasis in cancer biology. The department is strongly aligned with Huntsman Cancer Institute at the University of Utah (HCI), whose mission is to discover the origins of human cancer as well as develop new diagnostics and treatments.

The Department of Oncological Sciences brings together a community of faculty, students, and staff working with approximately 50 graduate students and 20 post-doctoral fellows in research laboratories. Our PhD degrees are in cancer biology with specialized training in transcriptional regulation and epigenetics, animal models of gastrointestinal and breast cancers, and cancer cell biology, including signaling, apoptosis and metabolism.
