Yale Cancer Center Researchers Investigate Inducing “Synthetic Lethality” in Two Blood and Bone Cancers
In a clinical trial led by Yale Cancer Center (YCC) and Smilow Cancer Hospital, researchers aim to exploit DNA mutations in the treatment of two blood and bone marrow cancers, a different tacit than the more traditional approach of blunting or switching off genetic mutations linked to cancer.
Yale Cancer Center study shows Artificial Intelligence can help radiologists find microscopic evidence of advancing head and neck cancer
New findings by researchers at Yale Cancer Center (YCC) show deep learning algorithms can outperforms radiologists in finding microscopic infiltrations of head and neck cancer in lymph nodes.
Yale Cancer Center study suggests new approaches needed to manage ibrutinib-related toxicities in CLL patients
New findings by Yale Cancer Center (YCC) and Smilow Cancer Hospital researchers show that as the use of the drug ibrutinib climbs in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), so do the rates of patients who stop taking the drug.
Yale Cancer Center researchers show promising new treatment for patients with myelodysplastic syndromes
A new study by Yale Cancer Center (YCC) and Smilow Cancer Hospital researchers suggests that the drug venetoclax aids therapy for relapsed/refractory myelodysplastic syndromes, especially when paired with azacytidine.
Yale Cancer Center researchers show identifying type of chronic pain in adults with sickle cell disease may lead to better outcomes
Identifying the type of pain an adult with sickle cell disease (SCD) experiences may be useful in improving treatment, according to a new study by researchers at Yale Cancer Center (YCC) and Smilow Cancer Hospital.
UConn and Yale Researchers Draw an Evolutionary Connection Between Pregnancy and Cancer Metastasis
A UConn School of Dental Medicine researcher used pregnancy to unlock a missing link between various species of mammals and cancer malignancy—fundamentally changing the way we look at cancer metastasis.
Alexa is a happy and healthy teenager thanks to a life-saving stem cell transplant at Smilow Cancer Hospital.

Yale study finds ‘hyperhotspots’ that could predict skin cancer risk
New research by Yale Cancer Center scientists reports the discovery of “hyperhotspots” in the human genome, locations that are up to 170-times more sensitive to ultraviolet radiation (UV) from sunlight compared to the genome average.
Examining Genomics in the Treatment of Cervical Cancer
Could targeted therapy play a larger role in the treatment of cervical cancer in the near future? Researchers from Yale Cancer Center believe they are one step closer to finding out, according to new study findings published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Smilow Rocks the ’60s sets to inspire New Haven hospital staff
