“The hospital’s clinical trial center provides support at each step of the clinical trial process from phase I to phase IV. The center has more than 880 ongoing clinical trials and submitted 452 new study proposals in 2020 alone,” said Prof. Fabio Ciceri, Scientific Director at San Raffaele.

The main focus areas of OSR are oncology, cardiovascular, neuroscience, immunology and infectious disease and metabolic disorders along with gene and cell therapy, genetics and cell biology, urology and nephrology, pediatric and gastrointestinal diseases.
