The strategic plan of Tufts Medical Center identified Cancer as a primary target. Responding to this plan, the Board of Tufts Medical Center established the Molecular Oncology Research Institute (MORI). Philip N. Tsichlis MD, was appointed as its Executive Director on September 1, 2002.
MORI, a core component of the
Cancer Center at Tufts Medical Center,
currently has 17 faculty members and occupies a space of more than
44,000 square feet in the 75 Kneeland Street research building. Its mission is to explore the molecular mechanisms of neoplastic transformation and to promote the translation of basic research findings into the clinic. To achieve this goal, MORI scientists carry out research that spans the spectrum from gene discovery to target validation for drug development.
