How Do You Make Cancer a Thing of the Past? Use the Past

Using advanced genetics to predict and fight cancer is the core of everything we do at UHCC. We have one of the largest genetic databases on earth that combines life-style and family histories with health records. This has helped us discover more inherited cancer genes than any other cancer center in the world - genes for colon cancer, breast cancer, and prostate cancer. Scientific discoveries made at UHCC are making a big impact in the way cancer is diagnosed and treated. And now, in many cases, inherited cancers can be detected early, or even prevented before they start.
