Research and clinical trials
As accredited partners of the Children’s Oncology Group (COG), we collaborate with scientists around the world to discover advanced cancer treatment options. We also participate in clinical trials and the development of therapeutics for children and young adults with cancer.
Clinical trials can be valuable because they provide patients with the opportunity to access new treatments. Now, by offering clinical trials through The Children's Hospital, we eliminate the need for parents to travel across the state or country to get this kind of expert level care for their child
