Wood Hudson Cancer Research Laboratory was incorporated January 26, 1981. Twenty-nine years later, Wood Hudson has increased its staff, research facilities, research capabilities, and research collaborations.
Over that time, Wood Hudson scientists have published or presented more than 120 papers reporting their research discoveries. Research data from Wood Hudson has been: (1) published in peer-reviewed journals enabling use by other scientists to advance their research; (2) used by the U.S. EPA in making regulatory decisions on risks of human exposure to drinking water chemicals; (3) used to further drug discovery and development.
Its scientists have also worked with more than 188 undergraduate students. Ninety percent of the students who have participated in its Undergraduate Research Education Program (UREP) and graduated from college are now physicians or other health care providers, scientists, or teachers.
