WHAT IF WE COULD PREVENT THE RECURRENCE OF OVARIAN CANCER?
Sounds incredible, right? But we are making tremendous strides in the detection, treatment, and prevention of women’s cancers—including breakthrough therapies for ovarian and cervical cancers that are in large-scale clinical trials right now.
Spotlight on: WOMEN’S CANCERS
One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.
When detected early, nearly all breast cancers are curable. However, in too many cases, screening, treatment, and prevention happen too late.
WHAT MAGEE SCIENTISTS ARE DOING
- We are uncovering new prevention and treatment approaches in more than 20 clinical trials.
- We are making strides in the detection, treatment, and prevention of women’s cancers.
- We are working to solve for treatment resistance in the most common form of breast cancer.
- We are examining the vulnerabilities in triple negative breast cancer to find a more effective cure for this aggressive disease.
Clinical Research & Trials
For over two decades, we have dedicated our clinical research studies and clinical trials to improving the health care of women, men, and infants everywhere. Our research would not be possible without the generous participation of many study volunteers.Learn More
Dr. Robert Edwards’ research is focused in two areas: harnessing the immune system to treat, and maybe someday prevent, ovarian cancer, and exploring the effectiveness of intraperitoneal chemotherapy combined with immunotherapy on the disease. Dr. Edwards oversees several clinical trials that hope to improve treatments for cervical and ovarian cancers.
Dr. Steffi Oesterreich’s main research interest is to further understand hormone action in breast cancer, with the goal of applying this knowledge for improved diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer patients.
