Cancer clinical trials

Simmons Cancer Center establishes a Phase I Clinical Trials Unit to help speed testing of the latest potential treatments for cancer patients.

Simmons Cancer Center’s external advisory board approves the Population Science and Cancer Control scientific program, led by Drs. Celette Skinner and Ethan Halm, to focus on early cancer detection.

The Cancer Answer Line (1-888-980-6050)—a Simmons Cancer Center service to help patients, family members, and others get answers to general questions about cancer and to better navigate care—makes its debut. In its first year, the Answer Line responds to more than 2,000 queries from the public.
