Ming Hsieh Institute for Research on Engineering-Medicine for Cancer

The Ming Hsieh Institute integrates engineering, scientific and medical research to speed discovery and create the pathway by which research rapidly improves the lives of real cancer patients. We aim to target and destroy malignant cancer cells before they cause systemic harm to cancer patients, and without the toxic effects normally associated with chemo therapeutic agents.

The Hsieh Institute promises to make USC a national and international leader in translational cancer research that bridges basic science, engineered devices, synthesized molecules and materials, and medicine.
