Receive the Earliest Access to New Treatments
John Theurer Cancer Center’s Phase I research program represent the earliest opportunity for patients to access novel and promising treatments. These trials only enroll a small number of participants, usually 15 to 100 patients, most of whom have advanced cancer that has not responded to standard cancer treatments.

Dr. Martin Gutierrez, who has been involved in early drug discovery for nearly two decades at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and other institutions, leads the Phase I Unit. Under Dr. Guiterrez’s leadership, John Theurer Cancer Center works closely with industry, the NCI and other academic institutions to expand its Phase I portfolio.
