With a robust research program, Roswell Park pioneers more effective treatments and prevention measures, providing patients with more options to maximize their chance for a cure. An emphasis on translational research allows us to develop our discoveries in the laboratory into promising therapeutics for patients — moving from lab bench to bedside — as quickly as possible.
Some areas of current research include:
Any new treatment undergoes years, even decades, of study and clinical studies, which involve people, encompass the final phases of cancer treatment research. Participating in a clinical study may be an important treatment option for many patients, who may be among the first to benefit from a new drug or therapy. About 50 percent of our patients are eligible for a clinical study. Whether or not you choose to participate is entirely your choice.
