Stanford Health Care: Tumor Board
At the weekly Tumor Board meetings, the brain tumor physicians come together to discuss the diagnosis and treatment for their most complex cases. They share their insights and expertise in this interdisciplinary setting to ensure that the most appropriate, research driven diagnosis and treatment decisions are made for each of their patients.

Tailoring Cancer Care Through Genomic Profiling

James Ford, MD, medical oncologist, explains how genetic testing is being applied to understand the genetic fingerprint of an individual’s cancer and lay the foundation for the future of cancer care. Insights gained from this profiling can help identify novel drugs that specifically target the mutations driving a person’s cancer.

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 may 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.
