Care and Treatment at Stanford

Programs and Services

The extensive range of advanced clinical services available under one roof truly reflects the world-class nature of the treatment patients receive at the Stanford Cancer Center.

Here is a sampling of some of the programs and services available to you:

Care for your mind and spirit at Stanford

It wouldn't be the best care possible if we didn't provide it in an atmosphere that soothes your soul and makes navigating treatment simple and convenient. By providing nourishing details like live piano music in the entry, natural light throughout the building, and room for your family to remain with you while you are receiving treatment, the Stanford Cancer Center stands as a physical symbol of our concern for your health and well-being.

In addition, a variety of services, and support staff are available to help with emotional, physical, or social challenges that you might encounter while receiving cancer care. Visit Cancer Patient Services to learn more about the variety of programs and services we offer.

Support groups and classes

The importance of support groups and their impact on cancer patient outcomes is well established; much of this important work has come from support groups at Stanford. Psychiatrists, psychologists, and social workers are involved in cancer support groups within the program.

Visit the Cancer Supportive Care Program to learn about the free classes, groups, and events we offer at the Stanford Cancer Center.

Clinical Trials

Stanford's cutting-edge research

The following is some of the research that Blood and Marrow Transplant Program doctors have recently been involved with:

  • Cellular therapeutics—translational research investigating specific cell populations, such as regulatory T-cells, cytokine induced killer (CIK) cells, tumor vaccines, and memory T-cells
  • Graft vs host disease—investigating novel approaches to the prevention and treatment of graft vs host disease
  • Haploidentical hematopoietic (blood forming) cell transplantation
  • Pioneered novel TLI/ATG allogeneic preparative regimen, which reduces rates of graft vs host disease and lowers transplant-related risks in select disease types

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 blood and marrow transplant eligibility flowcharts at the Stanford Cancer Institute.
