When it comes to cancer care, time is precious. Research at Aurora Health Care is paving the way toward detecting cancer at earlier stages and treating it more effectively. With approximately 200 cancer research projects – this work may help people live longer, with a better quality of life. And we won’t stop until we find a cure.
Aurora is home to a large team of cancer specialists, including national experts in breast cancer, brain tumors and cancer-fighting drugs (chemotherapy). We are not content with delivering the best available care. Through research, we are redefining cancer care.
Highlights of our program include:
We partner with drug (pharmaceutical) and medical device companies to study the safety and effectiveness of new treatments through clinical trials. In turn, you gain access to a broader range of treatments, many of which are available only in select programs across the country. Find out more about cancer clinical trials.
We are deeply committed to the safety of our clinical trial participants. Our team includes research coordinators who work with you one-on-one. We explain how a trial may help, coordinate all of your care and lend a caring ear whenever you need it. Find out more: clinical trial participant information.
Translational research projects “translate” scientific knowledge into new ways of detecting, preventing and treating cancer. Find out more about cancer translational research.
We are one of a few programs with expertise in two types of translational research, including:
