The Rao Lab


The current funding environment is challenging, especially for a new lab pursuing cutting edge translational research. We are therefore especially grateful for current and prior funding, through the National Institutes of Health/ National Cancer Institute, the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Research Foundation, the Stein-Oppenheimer Endowment at UCLA, the Tower Cancer Research Foundation, the Jonnson Comprehensive Cancer Center, the David Geffen School of Medicine and the UCLA Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine.

We welcome your thoughts and comments

Donations and gifts to help us further our research are, of course, welcome. If you are interested in contributing, please contact the principal investigator, Dr. Dinesh Rao at
