Research & Clinical Trials

Clinical Research

To ensure that patients have access to the widest variety of treatment options, Jefferson physicians are actively involved in cancer research on many fronts; at any given time, about 100 oncology clinical trials are being conducted here. The Clinical Research Organization (CRO) is the arm of the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center (SKCC) that manages and supports this important work. It ensures that trials comply with all federal, state and institutional regulations.
