Research for Women's Health

Women’s health issues take center stage at the Reproductive Tumor Biology Laboratory, housed in the new Danbury Hospital Biomedical Research Institute. Led by an international team of physician scientists known for their groundbreaking research in women’s cancers, the Institute puts Danbury Hospital at the forefront of biomedical research and personalized medicine.

Women’s Reproductive Cancers

Scientists – including a gynecologic oncology surgeon – will initially focus on women’s reproductive cancers at the Institute’s Reproductive Tumor Biology Research Laboratory. Researchers are using a proteomic platform to study protein-protein interactions that impact the body’s response to treatment.

The research underway will likely have far-reaching implications in many medical specialties. The goal is to bring research findings to the bedside through clinical trials as soon as possible. The team is conducting molecular research that will eventually lead to targeted treatments that are tailored to an individual’s genetic composition.

Clinical Trials and Epidemiologic Studies

The Institute complements the ongoing research being conducted at the hospital, including clinical trials and epidemiologic studies in a number of medical areas.
