Cancer Research and Clinical Trials

As a university hospital, Fletcher Allen, together with our partners at the Vermont Cancer Center, continually pursues better ways to prevent, screen for, diagnose, and treat medical conditions through medical research.

As a patient at Fletcher Allen, you benefit from the knowledge that comes from an active cancer research program.  Our researchers are committed to facilitating the translation of research from the laboratory, to the patient’s bedside, to the community, in order to make a difference in the lives of our patients. And these discoveries not only improve care for people here at Fletcher Allen, but across the country and around the world.
