The gynecologic oncology team at Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin is involved with a nationwide group called the Gynecologic Oncology Group (GOG). This group consists of Gynecologic Oncologists, Medical Oncologists, Pathologists, Radiologists and many scientific researchers from around the world.
The GOG is a non-profit organization with the purpose of promoting excellence in the quality and integrity of clinical and basic scientific research in the field of Gynecologic malignancies. The Group is committed to maintaining the highest standards in clinical trials development, execution, analysis and distribution of results. Continuous evaluation of our processes is utilized in order to constantly improve the quality of patient care.
To promote this mission, the GOG receives support from the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes for Health. Approximately 45 individual clinical trials are active at any one time within GOG for the patients with a variety of gynecologic malignancies, including cancers that arise from the ovaries, uterus, cervix, vagina, and vulva. General information on many of these trials for medical professionals and the lay public can be obtained from the NCI clinical trials database.
