Dedicated to Excellence
Welcome to CRI
The UC Irvine Cancer Research Institute (CRI) is an organized research unit dedicated to basic cancer research. The CRI has over 60 faculty affiliates from departments in the Schools of Biological Sciences, Engineering, Medicine, Physical Sciences and Pharmaceutical Science. The CRI supports faculty research, organizes cancer related training and functions as the basic science arm of the UCI Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center. The CRI offices are located in Sprague Hall on the UCI main campus.
World Class Faculty
The CRI is actively involved in teaching of graduate students. 138 graduate students are currently training in the laboratories of CRI affiliates. A major focus of this teaching is the NCI-funded Training Program in Cancer Biology. The training program organizes graduate courses in cancer biology, and it supports trainees by providing tuition/fee and research stipends.
T32 Training Grant
The Cancer Biology and Therapeutics (CBT) training program provides UCI graduate students and postdoctoral fellows with comprehensive, highly interdisciplinary training that includes cancer biology, the most current research methods, and a focus on translational science such as the development of novel cancer therapeutics and diagnostics.
The CRI Shared Resources help foster innovative research into the causes, diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Browse from a list of downloadable PDF, information and links. CRI affiliates may use the links to download text describing Shared Resources that can be used for grant applications.
