The Winthrop P. Rockefeller Cancer Institute directs all cancer research for the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) and its affiliated institutions. Cancer Institute scientists are committed to reducing cancer incidence, mortality and morbidity in Arkansas and the surrounding region.

The Cancer Institute’s approach is simple: Discovery in our labs leads to the development of new treatment strategies, which are then delivered to the patients in our clinics. The bottom line for our patients is that our research fuels innovative treatment options.

The Cancer Institute accomplishes our research goals through focused programs, shared resources, and disease-specific sciences.
