Research and Clinical Trials
Clinicians and academic researchers in the Sentara Cancer Network partner with Virginia Oncology Associates, Eastern Virginia Medical School, George Mason University and other national and local healthcare organizations to conduct research that elevates patient care. We offer research throughout the Sentara system, with a focus in Hampton Roads and Blue Ridge regions.
