Uncovering New Approaches to Cancer Treatment

Attracting outstanding scientists to expand and contribute to current research efforts is a primary goal of the GW Cancer Center. With state-of-the-art clinical facilities, the center is poised to considerably enhance its research efforts by adding scientists, clinicians and support staff dedicated to the discovery of new cancer therapies.

Clinical Trials

GW physicians conduct a wide variety of clinical trials in the areas of cancer treatment and research. A clinical trial is a research study to test how well investigational treatments work in patients. They are the safest and most effective way to examine a treatment for cancer. Participants in a clinical trial have access to up-to-date medical care from our GW physicians, new treatments and the best available standard of care for their type of cancer.

With its affiliation to the GW School of Medicine and Health Sciences, the GW Cancer Center has access to physicians who wear multiple hats – as clinicians, researchers and educators. Committed to sharing the latest knowledge and evidence, these faculty members contribute to better cancer care through education. As the research activities of the center expand, educational activities will be designed to ensure that new developments are shared with t
