Research and Clinical Trials

DF/BWCC is a leader in clinical research that aims to advance the understanding, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of cancer. As part of your treatment, you may have a chance to participate in a clinical trial, which is a research study that may test the safety and effectiveness of new therapies, look at new ways to give treatment, see how lifestyle changes can help cancer patients, or explore methods to keep cancer from recurring. Through Dana-Farber in Boston, patients have access to over 1,000 clinical trials. Select trials are also available at the Cancer Center in Milford.

Information about clinical trials is available online, including a helpful video, “Entering a clinical trial: Is it right for you?”
