Research, Safety and Quality

A commitment to research, safety and quality are some of the many reasons our patients report a better quality of life. Our research results in effective and quality care which has led to the development of new therapies, medications and vaccines, including the HPV vaccine — the first vaccine to prevent gynecologic cancer. Our patient satisfaction scores are among the highest in the nation, due to our commitment to safety and quality.

Clinical Trials

Patients benefit from access to the advanced treatments created at Johns Hopkins. Our clinical trials are scientific studies that advance cancer care and prove the effectiveness of a new medication or procedure, allowing people with cancer to live longer, fuller lives. Every treatment widely available today used to be part of a clinical trial.

Want to learn more about clinical trials at Hopkins? We break down the details and why it’s important to participate—for yourself and the community at our understanding clinical trials page.
