Collaboration is Key to Making Progress

Collaboration is the key to finding new and more effective approaches to preventing, detecting and treating cancer. Our research successes are grounded in the contributions of scientists, physicians and patients and their families who are committed to finding a cure for cancer.

Our Research: From Benchside to Bedside

At the IU Simon Cancer Center, physician and scientific investigators are working closely together to target clinical problems to be addressed in the lab and speed the translation of promising laboratory research into new treatments. Research leads to progress against many types of cancer — including better ways to prevent, detect and treat the disease, a lower chance of death and improved quality of life. Through research at the IU Simon Cancer Center, progress is possible and knowledge about the disease keeps increasing.

For Patients

The IU Simon Cancer Center offers more than 600 clinical trials for pediatric and adult cancers. These trials include everything from lifestyle surveys to studies of new chemotherapy agents in patients currently undergoing treatment. Search our current clinical trials.

For Researchers

As members of the IU Simon Cancer Center, researchers have access to our shared facilities at reduced rates, and most importantly, they have the opportunity to form new collaborations with other cancer researchers. Explore our research programs.
