Stanford Cancer Center

We know that a cancer diagnosis can be a stressful time for patients and their families and are here to help every step of the way.

Cancer Center

Stanford Cancer Center is a state-of-the-art medical building offering the latest advances in patient-focused treatment in a warm and supportive environment. Consolidating the medical center's resources for diagnosing and treating cancer, the cancer center enhances Stanford's team approach to care while enabling patients and their families to stay in one location for procedures and tests and focus on healing.

Patients can go from the clinics on the first floor to the infusion treatment area on the second floor to radiation oncology on the ground floor. Prescriptions can be filled at the onsite pharmacy, while a café offers a convenient place to grab a bite between appointments.

Stanford Cancer Institute

The Cancer Center is the service-delivery arm of the Stanford Cancer Institute (SCI), which focuses the world-class expertise of more than 300 researchers and clinicians from the Schools of Medicine, Engineering and Humanities & Sciences on the most critical issues in cancer research and medicine today. Combining leading-edge science with coordinated, compassionate care, Stanford Cancer Institute aims to be a national model for transforming the patient experience and bringing the best science to every patient.

Our Doctors


Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate a new medical approach, device, drug, or other treatment. As a Stanford Health Care patient, you have access to the latest, advanced clinical trials.

Open trials refer to studies currently accepting participants. Closed trials are not currently enrolling, but may open in the future.

Before beginning treatment, ask your doctor about any clinical trials you should consider. Learn more about clinical trials for cancer patients.

Clinical trial eligibility flowcharts

Eligibility flowcharts map clinical trials to specific types of cancers to determine if a participant is eligible for the particular clinical trial. View all cancer eligibility flowcharts at the Stanford Cancer Institute.
