Developing tomorrow's healthcare breakthroughs today

 
  • Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center

    vanetten_2020.jpgThe UCI Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center (CFCCC), led by Associate Vice Chancellor and Director Richard A. Van Etten, MD, PhD, is the only National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated comprehensive cancer center in Orange County. NCI cancer centers are national leaders in cancer research, education and treatment, and centers designated as "comprehensive" are at the forefront, signifying that it has met rigorous criteria aimed at providing world-class patient care and innovative research.

  • Institute for Clinical and Translational Science

    Dan CooperThe UCI Institute for Clinical and Translational Science (ICTS), led by Associate Vice Chancellor and Director Dan Cooper, MD, is funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) under the Clinical and Translational Sciences Award (CTSA) program. Currently, there are more than 50 medical research institutions throughout the United States that receive CTSA program funding. The ICTS functions as a local centerpiece for the national program, and is dedicated to advancing scientific discovery and medical breakthroughs. Collectively, our goal is simple: to accelerate these discoveries from the lab and translate them into life-altering medical care.

  • Precision Health through Artificial Intelligence

    PHDAI-TEAM.jpgThe UCI Precision Health through Artificial Intelligence Initiative is led by Co-Directors Leslie M. Thompson, Ph.D., Peter D. Chang, M.D., Daniel S. Chow, M.D., and Suzanne Sandmeyer, Ph.D. Vastly improved health and longer lifespans also bring chronic disorders arising from cumulative genetic, environmental and metabolic factors. Simultaneously, the increasing sophistication of medical diagnostics yields an exponential growth in the density and complexity of aggregated healthcare data. Together, these factors provide an unprecedented opportunity to study differences in disease among individuals and provide tailored patient care. The mission of the UCI Precision Health through Artificial Intelligence Initiative is to leverage machine learning technology to transform population-through molecular-level data into personalized health solutions, and make these tools available to providers and patients around the world.
