The mission of the UW Carbone Cancer Center (UWCCC) Chemoprevention (CP) Scientific Program is to lessen society's cancer burden through the discovery and development of agents which decrease the incidence or progression of invasive neoplasia.  


Program Leaders

Howard Bailey, MD Hasan Mukhtar, PhD


An important aspect of performing clinical chemoprevention trials is the Program's interaction with various Disease Oriented Working Groups (DOWGs)/Clinical Research Groups (CRGs) that are embedded within the Scientific Programs. The Chemoprevention CRG led by Dr. Bailey is embedded in the CP Program.  Collaborative efforts with DOWGs/CRGs have been critical to the recent and ongoing clinical trials success within the Program.
