Cancer doesn’t have borders, and neither do global research efforts at the O’Neal Comprehensive Cancer Center. The Globalization and Cancer Initiative develops sustainable international partnerships to address global health issues related to cancer health disparities. UAB investigators collaborate with scientists across the world to pursue bidirectional cancer research partnerships, sharing lessons learned in the U.S. to other countries and bringing home knowledge gained by others across the world.
