Gynecologic Oncology

Gynecologic Oncology Clinical Trials

The Division of Gynecologic Oncology has one of the largest Clinical Trial Research Programs in Northern California and is on the forefront of translational research in gynecologic cancers. Through the collaborative work of our providers, research team and other UCSF staff, we offer a wide variety of clinical trials that provide women with gynecologic cancers access to cutting edge investigational therapies and treatment methods. Our practice serves as a regional research hub which attracts patients from across California seeking out clinical trials. Additionally, we are a voting member of the national Cooperative Group NRG Oncology, an interdisciplinary research organization dedicated to improving the survival and quality of life of cancer patients through research, where we help to shape Gynecologic Oncology care on a national and global level. We are excited to continue to grow our Clinical Research Program by adding additional staff and expanding our trial portfolio, with the goal of being able to provide any woman with gynecologic cancer interested in participating in a clinical trial access to potentially life-saving therapy.
