Groundbreaking Research & Clinical Trials

After a cancer diagnosis, patients and their families know that every moment counts. That’s why UVA researchers are dedicated to translating exciting lab discoveries into promising new treatments, as well as offering patients access to the latest clinical trials—sometimes a patient's last hope. Private support opens doors and speeds the pace of discovery. Learn more about cancer research here, and learn more about promising new clinical trials here.

Supportive Care

What's the best course of treatment for the patient? What emotional support or resources will they need? UVA Cancer Center wraps supportive care around every patient and their family. Learn more.

Spotlight: A Cancer Center Without Walls

Specialized cancer centers like UVA—where physicians have more experience and can collaborate with experts in other fields of medicine—are key to improving patient outcomes. However, living far away from such a center can lead to later diagnoses and lower quality of care. That's why UVA is strengthening our “Cancer Center without Walls” approach. We are serving remote communities through risk assessment and early screenings, using telemedicine to provide follow-up care such as pain management, and developing robust survivorship programs that improve the quality of life for patients and their families in their own communities. Philanthropy can help us better serve the region.
