Clinical Trials

Biomedical clinical research is a major component of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center's mission and is critical to its commitment of maintaining excellence in patient care.

Cedars-Sinai investigators are currently conducting more than 800 clinical research projects with 230 unique Principal Investigators. These encompass basic, translational, clinical and health services research and cover the entire spectrum of disease investigation, including molecular genetics, biochemical analysis and disease-based areas such as cancer, cardiovascular disorders and neurosciences. With our bench-to-bedside approach to clinical research, some of our work leads to paradigm shifts and dramatic changes in patient care.

Areas of clinical research include:


  • Breast cancer
  • Carcinoid/neuroendocrine cancer
  • Experimental therapeutics/phase 1
  • Gastrointestinal cancer (pancreas, liver, colon, esophagus)
  • Gynecologic cancer (cervix, uterus/endometrium, ovary, fallopian tube, peritoneum)
