Clinical trials for colorectal cancer

Clinical trials are a vital step in discovering new treatments for cancer. UCLA doctors conduct clinical research to find new therapies for colorectal and gastrointestinal tumors, and geneticists also work with precision medicine, which uses your DNA to help pinpoint the best treatment for you. By participating in a clinical trial, you will have access to the most innovative care.

Clinical trials for colorectal cancer are conducted through the UCLA Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center. If you are interested in finding out more about these studies, visit our list of open clinical trials.
