Phase 1 Clinical Research Program

Our clinical research in Medical Oncology is an integrated program that leverages the scientific and clinical expertise at Stanford. Phase I trials sit at the interface of laboratory advances and later stage clinical development; expedite development of new treatments while ensuring patient safety; and provide the basis to prioritize resource allocation and inform rational drug development strategies. The program conducts trials that provide proof of mechanism, proof of principle, and proof of concept early in the process of developing novel therapeutics. One of our research interests is to use imaging to evaluate drug pharmacokinetics and target modulation.
