Clinical Trials / Research

A key component of the Women’s Cancer Center at Stanford 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.

In ovarian cancer, basic researchers and clinical investigators are exploring chemo-resistance in certain ovarian tumors and personalized approaches to overcome it. Other research is focused on the stem cell biology of ovarian cancers to help improve early detection and treatment.  New means of classifying ovarian tumors and vaccine development are also key areas of our ovarian research.
