We are committed to fulfilling Stony Brook's mission of excellence in research, and to advancing scientific knowledge to improve patient care and population health.
Our participation in national clinical trials allows us to use the latest in therapeutic advances for the care of different cancers — and this gives our patients the only opportunity available in Suffolk County to benefit from such studies.
Participation in our clinical trials is always completely voluntary, and never interferes with the normal standards for patient care.
We are active participants in various national research groups, and in this capacity we participate in numerous clinical trials.
Among the research groups in which our faculty participate are the Early Detection Research Network Pancreatic Cancer Working Group, Gastrointestinal Spore: Inter-SPORE Clinical Committee, and Pancreatic Cancer Collaborative Registry.
