There are two major approaches to the development of new anti-cancer pharmaceuticals: direct chemical synthesis and extraction from naturally occurring materials, such as plants. The Walker Cancer Research Institute, Inc. maintains laboratories for both purposes. Our major chemical synthesis laboratory is situated in Detroit Michigan and is under the direction of Dr. Eduardo Palomino. This laboratory, which is housed on the campus of Wayne State University, is both independently funded and operated by Walker Cancer Research Institute, Inc., and has no affiliation with the University.
