Advancing cancer research

Cancer patients need every resource available in their fight against the disease. Leading-edge research at Scripps provides access to drugs and therapies in development.


Scripps Clinical Research Services coordinates a number of cancer clinical trials. Contact Andrea Van Ducen at 858-605-7360 for more information. Each trial has its own participation guidelines, called eligibility criteria. Ask your physician if clinical trials are an option for you.

Our genomics program is working to assemble information on the genetic basis of cancer. The future of cancer treatment and prevention is one where teams examine an individual’s genetic profile, and devise care plans specifically and optimally tailored to each patient.
