Clinical Trials

We have more than 300 ongoing clinical trials conducted independently and in partnership with research and pharmaceutical companies, research consortiums, patient advocacy groups and the National Institutes of Health. Participating in a clinical trial can allow patients to be among the first in the world to access potentially lifesaving therapies and have access to many of our outstanding JTCC medical experts.

Translational Medicine

Translational medicine allows patients to benefit from research by moving (translating) the latest scientific advances into a clinical setting earlier. This is especially important for difficult cancers. We know from experience that once difficult diagnoses are now treatable. Translational medicine is a step toward making that possible.

Value Based Care

Value-based care improves clinical outcomes and reduces cancer-care costs through precise classification of illness and smarter use of data. Through our partnership with Cancer Outcomes Tracking and Analysis (COTA) we empower oncologists with real-world care insights, enable alternative payment models, create national outcomes benchmarks, accelerate drug discovery and approval and empower patients to make informed decisions about their care.
