Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine

Center for Cancer Genomics

With the rapid development of high-throughput sequencing technologies, genomics has emerged as a powerful tool in cancer research and clinical practice.

The Center for Cancer Genomics (CCG) of the Lurie Cancer Center aims to leverage these transformative and translational discoveries to identify new therapeutic targets and guide individualized cancer care.

By collaborating with the broader scientific community - within and across disciplines - the Center for Cancer Genomics will develop novel approaches to cancer treatment, with better understanding and greater precision.”

Feng Yue, PhD, Founding Director, Center for Cancer Genomics

Working closely with colleagues throughout Northwestern, the expertise of CCG investigators includes, large-scale genomic / epigenomic profiling, whole-genome DNA methylation, higher-order chromatin structure, spatial genomics and single cell technologies. In addition, the CCG will expand our strength in computational biology and, in particular, the application of machine learning in genomics.
