The goal of the Molecular Therapeutics Program is to foster the exchange of ideas, cooperation, and collaboration leading to translation of basic research into the clinic, and to use basic research to answer clinical questions related to improving strategies for the treatment of cancer.
Focus on Molecular Therapeutics
Putting a Parasite to Work
From the litter box to the laboratory, a microscopic organism native to cats shows promise in treating cancer. Dartmouth researchers’ mutated strain of T. gondii reprograms the natural power of the immune system to kill cells.

The Program provides a forum for discussion of new developments in cellular and molecular biology, with particular focus on cell cycle regulation, signal transduction, apoptosis and differentiation, as well as development of potentially novel therapeutic strategies within these foci.
