“The future of medicine is the individualization of care. Meaning we wish to identify genetic and epigenetic factors that contribute to different diseases in different people, and customize therapies to treat them.”

- Jean-Pierre Issa, MD, Director of the Fels Institute for Cancer Research and Molecular Biology and Professor of Medicine

The Fels Institute for Cancer Research and Molecular Biology has a long and storied history at Temple University.  Established in 1933, The Fels Institute utilizes the advances made in basic science programs to develop novel targeted therapies for the treatment of cancer.

Organized as a group of laboratories lead by individual investigators, The Fels Institute fosters independence among investigators while promoting innovations and collaboration between them, and plays a critical role in the dissemination of scientific knowledge.
