UC San Francisco – Cancer Cell Map Initiative

Department: Cancer Cell Map Initiative

The mission of the Cancer Cell Map Initiative is to enable a new era of cancer discovery and treatment based on the complete elucidation of the molecular networks underlying cancer. This information will be critical for developing computational models of cancer cells that will enable both basic research and clinical decision-making.
