Today’s medical science creates effective treatments for diseases and injuries by building on existing discoveries and knowledge. This incremental, improvement-focused approach is a useful means of meeting the urgent needs of patients diagnosed with life-threatening diseases. Equally important, however, is research that attempts to transform our understanding of disease.
This is the tactic used by our center. With such an unconventional approach, the possibilities are limitless, from creating a single vaccine that prevents virtually all types of cancer to treating oncoming illness before experiencing any of the symptoms. This methodology allows us to approach problems in ways that have never been attempted before.
The expertise of the Center for Innovations in Medicine is built on a history of innovation. Our efforts focus on the improvement of medical diagnostics and treatment, and the prevention of disease.
