Research at University Cancer & Blood Center
Cancer clinical trials are research studies that evaluate a new drug or treatment combination in addition to the standard therapies currently available. They offer the ability to be treated with a new drug that would otherwise not be accessible for years to come. To become an approved therapy, every cancer treatment must first be tested in a clinical trial. At University Cancer & Blood Center, our patients have access to our extensive list of clinical trials for the newest, most advanced cancer treatments. In some cases these trials are available at UCBC even before large academic institutions. Our clinical trial program offers trials which are being performed across the US and even worldwide. The Conquer Cancer Foundation and American Society of Clinical Oncology awarded UCBC’s Clinical Research Department with the 2013 Clinical Trials Participation Award. This award is designed to increase the awareness of and participation in clinical trials among physicians through the recognition of quality, community based clinical research sites. This is a high honor and UCBC is only the second practice in Georgia to receive this recognition.
Our physicians and staff are committed to providing patients cutting-edge therapies through clinical trials without having to travel far from home. Our research department is made up of experienced certified professionals dedicated to providing the highest quality patient care.
