Investigator-Initiated Trials (IIT) 

Driving Research For Patients

Sylvester researchers are physician scientists who work toward personalized treatment.

Investigator-initiated clinical trials enable our physician-scientists to provide that tailored, relevant research. In the clinic, physicians observe firsthand the specific characteristics of their patients’ disease. These observations open new avenues of research into challenging diseases, especially the development of new trials that may be better suited to our patients than most ongoing trials, which are often led by large industry sponsors and designed with the “average” patient in mind. Ideally, this level of personalization will lead to better outcomes.
