Stanford Cancer Institute is one of the few NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers in the United States. This designation recognizes the Institute's scientific rigor across its laboratory research and clinical assessments of treatments.
Clinical trials are used to evaluate new and better ways to diagnose, treat and manage symptoms of cancer. Participating in a trial may give you access to experimental treatments that otherwise are not available.
Stanford has been able to contribute so much and has so much potential for contributing even more because we look at problems from a new perspective. That is so important in advancing science and advancing clinical care.
