Brain Tumor Center at UIC

Clinical Trials & Research Initiatives

The UIC Brain Tumor Center supports a number research initiatives, participates in cutting clinical trials, and conducts original research. Read more about the brain tumor research that is happening at UIC.

 

Clinical Trials:

Standard of care treatments exist for every tumor type, but options can be limited. For this reason, clinical trials are an essential component of care. To learn more about brain tumor clinical trials offered at the University of Illinois, call Jean Arzbaecher at (312)-996-3369 or send an email to: jeana@uic.edu or review these links:
