Research

OCERN is dedicated to raising funds for ovarian cancer research in order to further better treatment protocols and ultimately find a cure.  In collaboration with our Medical Advisory Board, we have developed a grant program to award investigators who are striving to further ovarian cancer research.  See an update on our 2016 Grant in the video below.

Survivors Teaching Students

In 2015, OCERN became a Partner Member representative for the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance's Survivor's Teaching Students Program at Standford University's  School of Medicine. The goal of Survivors Teaching Students is for future physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses and physician assistants to learn from the unique stories of ovarian cancer survivors and be able to diagnose the disease when it is in its earlier, most treatable stages. OCERN also participates in the Survivors Teaching Students program at the UC Davis School of Medicine.
