Gynecological Cancer Expertise
With expertise in the basic and clinical sciences, Stanford investigators are delving into the basic origins of female and gynecologic cancers and in turn translating their findings into the most advanced diagnostic and treatment strategies available today.
Some of our translations research efforts include:
Stem cell research that may influence new treatments
Early detection of ovarian cancer using biomarkers and new methods of imaging
Understanding drug resistance in certain ovarian cancers
New ways of classifying ovarian cancer; development of vaccines to prevent relapse
Use of novel chemotherapeutics in uterine tumors
Mechanisms of HPV-induced malignancy, and new prevention and detection strategies for cervical cancer

As an academic medical institution, the Stanford Cancer Center is committed to improving the standard of care for the millions of individuals worldwide who receive a cancer diagnosis each year. Drawing upon the expertise of more than 240 researchers and clinicians from the Schools of Medicine, Engineering and Humanities & Sciences, the center is at the forefront of today's advances in cancer research and medicine.
A key component of the Stanford Women's Cancer Center is translational research, where laboratory discoveries are shepherded into the clinic, improving prevention efforts, early diagnosis and treatment, and patient outcomes. Other researchers are focused on areas such as molecular classification of tumors, improved imaging and gene sequencing methods.
Before beginning treatment, ask your doctor about any clinical trials you should consider. Learn more about clinical trials for cancer patients.
