Translational Research and Clinical Trials
Aurora Health Care’s doctors and research experts have big ambitions. We are delivering today’s best available care while pursuing answers to today’s most pressing research questions.
Our work holds promise for changing the course of care for complex conditions, including cancer and neurologic and cardiovascular conditions. We are also pursuing research to expand our reach into new areas, including asthma care and women’s health.
Highlights of our program include:
- Patient-centered research: Across all of our research interests, the one constant is our focus on improving the lives of the people Aurora serves. We only pursue research that has a clear patient benefit, like using a person’s immune system to fight cancer (immunotherapy). We also offer a unique triathlon training program in which we are studying the benefits of exercise in breast cancer survivors. Read more about cancer research.
- A history of innovation: Aurora is home to cardiovascular research innovations that have transformed care. In 1968, our team pioneered a lifesaving procedure for heart attack victims (coronary artery bypass grafting or CABG). We continue pushing new frontiers in areas such as arrhythmia care. Learn more about cardiovascular research.
- World-renowned expertise: Neuroscience research at Aurora is led by a neurosurgery expert whose accomplishments have ushered in a new era of care for complex conditions. In fact, doctors from around the world look to our team for answers on their toughest cases. Find out more about neurology and brain tumor research.
- New areas of research: We are expanding the reach of our clinical research capabilities with projects and clinical trials in emerging areas. These efforts hold promise for improving the care of our community’s most pressing health conditions, including asthma and bladder problems. Learn more about emerging research areas.
