Tulane Cancer Center ~ Research Programs ~ Clinical & Translational Research

Translational research refers to the transformation of scientific discoveries into new ways to prevent, diagnose, and treat disease.  Our Clinical & Translational Research Program includes basic research scientists whose goal is to have their laboratory discoveries transfer to the clinical setting and advance patient care, as well as clinicians involved in clinical research trials.  Our clinical research program selects emerging therapies and strategies to offer to our patients as experimental alternatives to routine care. We test new drugs and new strategies through Tulane faculty investigator-initiated trials, as well as pharmaceutical industry trials and cooperative group trials. Our research patients come from our core teaching hospitals (Tulane Medical Center, VAMC, and UMC) and from our network of community oncology practices.
