Cancer Research

Sanford Research has 30+ years of experience bringing clinical trials to the community as part of the National Cancer Institute’s Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP). This means our team of researchers and physician scientists are able to offer cancer patients access to the most advanced care and treatment that today's medical research can offer. In addition, Sanford Research partners with the entire Sanford Cancer multidisciplinary team to ensure research is integrated into all areas of care. 


Clinical Trials

Clinical trials may provide patients with access to the most innovative cancer treatments before they are widely available. In addition, by participating in clinical trials, patients assist researchers and physicians in finding better treatment options for the future. Today’s gold standard for therapy was yesterday’s clinical trial.

Precision Medicine

Sanford Roger Maris Cancer Center has implemented a state-of-the-art Genomic Oncology Program that enables our doctors to quickly determine if a cancerous tumor contains certain genetic markers. Those results are reviewed by a dedicated team of experts at a weekly Genomic Tumor Board who can recommend customized treatment options, including targeted therapies, to each patient based on their specific results.


Cancer Immunotherapy Trials

Cancer Immunotherapy Trials

Cancer immunotherapy is a treatment that empowers the body’s own immune system to fight off cancer. At Sanford Roger Maris Cancer Center, in addition to providing immunotherapy as standard of care, we have access to a multitude of clinical trials in various cancer types utilizing immunotherapy.


Because cancer care is always evolving, the Sanford Roger Maris Cancer team is the best resource in providing information about the latest treatments and active research studies. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, please call 1-877-878-4825.
