Women's Cancer Program

The Women’s Cancer Program brings together Cedars-Sinai physicians and scientists to focus on how cancer impacts women. This includes both gender-specific cancers (such as breast and ovarian), and other cancers that may affect women differently than men (such as lung cancer). Led by Beth Karlan, MD, the program represents a comprehensive approach that emphasizes research and cross disciplinary linkages to Cedars-Sinai's clinical programs. As one of the country's foremost translational research programs, the Women's Cancer Program offers a wide variety of research protocols and clinical trials to develop new approaches to early detection, prevention and individualized treatments that will improve cancer survival for women.
