Advancing enrollment in clinical trials

The Virtual Tumor Boards hosted by the UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center and attended by the UC Davis Cancer Care Network affiliates allows for case-based multi-disciplinary discussions to ascertain eligibility for clinical trials enrollment.  In this fashion, patients have access to enroll in clinical trials through the UC Davis Cancer Care Network, while  receiving their therapy through their local physician providers.
