MCG receives second-time designation from National Cancer Institute

ram funding supports the infrastructure for dozens of clinical studies instead of just one, says Dr. Jillella.

Because of the CCOP cooperation, we can extend adult trials to our pediatric patients that wouldnt have been available before, he says.

The grant also provides money for studies on preventing cancer and studies that can help improve the quality of life for patients already undergoing treatments.

Theres a lot of research being done on potential treatments, but theres only a drop in the bucket of studies that focus on the patient with cancer, says Dr. Ferris. When people have cancer, clearly, one of the major goals is to cure it. But we also realize that during that process, some bad things can happen. Thats where we come in. We need to find ways to minimize suffering and make the treatment period more tolerable for the patient. Are there better medications" Alternative treatments for side effects of drugs"

These types of studies also help patients ta
