Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC-James) has six highly interactive cancer research programs that include more than 250 leading cancer researchers and scientists from 11 of the 13 colleges at The Ohio State University. Unprecedented programmatic funding and the recently announced $1 billion expansion of the cancer hospital, clinics and laboratories have fostered growth of scientific programs and the development of shared resources.

Shared Resources

The 18 Shared Resources provide investigators with easy access to specialized technologies, services, methodologies and consultation that catalyze abilities to conduct cancer research. Through the leadership of skilled faculty and technicians, these shared resources provide cost-effective, reliable and quality services for our researchers.


Translational Research

The collaborative efforts of our researchers, scientists and oncologists in the laboratory, clinic and community foster translational research from bench to bedside—and back.

Scientific Publications
