Translating research breakthroughs into more effective treatments remains one of Sylvester’s highest priorities. Clinical trials (also known as research studies) are used to answer specific questions about new therapies or new ways of using known therapies. They allow patients to participate in the newest treatments in development.
Sylvester conducts more clinical research than any other institution in South Florida and has a wide range of trials underway. The Phase I Clinical Trials Program at Sylvester is South Florida’s only academic phase I testing center dedicated to drug development for cancer patients.
