Cancer research not only advances the state of the art in cancer treatment, it also provides a source of hope and help to patients for whom other treatments have failed. As a member of the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center, University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center is involved in the discovery of new forms of prevention, diagnosis and treatment. UH Seidman Cancer Center research efforts are focused on "developmental therapeutics" – quickly translating scientific findings into the highest quality patient care. Thus, UH Seidman Cancer Center patients are among the first in the nation to benefit from the newest investigative cancer treatments—many of which are not available outside a research setting.
Clinical trials are research studies that are used to find better ways to diagnose and treat individuals with cancer. UH Seidman Cancer Center offers more than 300 clinical trials in most cancer diagnoses and stages of disease.
The Cancer Genetics Program at University Hospitals brings together experts from the Center for Human Genetics and University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center to help families with a history of breast, colon or pediatric cancers.
