High-quality research guarantees high-quality treatment
Cancer treatment runs in parallel with advanced scientific research. The Turku University Hospital is the second largest cancer research centre in Finland. Its mission is to coordinate cancer research and teaching on the entire west-coast area. The goal is to apply research information as effectively as possible to clinical work in all three hospital districts of the Tyks special responsibility area.
The role within cancer research of the Cancer Centre is also of national significance. The goal is to integrate cancer research within the region into clinical patient work throughout Finland.
Ongoing research projects
A patient may opt for participating in one of the ongoing clinical cancer trials in the Tyks Hospital. Such participation provides valuable input for improvement of cancer treatment and for the development of new anticancer drugs. Participation in a trial is always voluntary.
