At the Dorothy E. Schneider Cancer Center we are committed to advancing the field of cancer treatment and prevention through research. Here you can participate in highly respected clinical trials conducted by the National Cancer Institute in a community setting, as well as in trials conducted by pharmaceutical companies. If we don’t offer the clinical trial you need, our staff will help you find the right study and refer you to it.
Our clinical trials focus on developing new treatment strategies and controlling symptoms. This helps us provide innovative treatments that lead to better understanding and treatment of cancer.
Because of cancer research, we have better and more effective cancer drugs today. Cancer survival rates have increased, and patients’ quality of life has improved. Many of these new treatments would not be available today if it were not for cancer research programs and cancer patients willing to participate in clinical trials.
