Discovery of a biomarker that may predict recurrence in endometrial cancer patients
Basic and translational research is an integral part of the work being done by clinic and staff in the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Women's Health. Our goal is to take our research from the lab to clinical trials and then finally into the hospital or clinic setting, where it can improve the lives of patients. One of these projects, led by Dr. Martina Bazzaro, is focused on finding out why some patients with endometrial cancer relapse after surgery and chemotherapy. And she's discovered a biomarker that may predict recurrence in endometrial cancer patients. Read about what she's discovered here

Basic and translational research is an integral part of the work being done by the faculty and staff in the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Women’s Health. Our collaborative approach to research enables clinicians and research scientists to work together on a daily basis to plan and implement research studies, and share, manage and analyze research data.
Basic scientists and physician-scientist faculty members are actively involved in multiple clinical trials testing the most promising cutting edge therapies under investigation. These research efforts cover a broad range of topics from testing new drugs to understanding the genetic basis of ovarian cancer. Discover more about some of the research here.
The mission of the Ovarian Cancer Early Detection Program (OCEDP) is to develop, within five years, a clinical test to screen women for early markers of ovarian cancer.
