Cedars-Sinai: Making a Difference in Women's Cancer Research

Women's cancer specialists at the Cedars-Sinai Women’s Cancer Program are actively involved in research. Our experts take a bench-to-bedside approach, using their scientific findings to inform your treatment plan.

Our teams continuously seek new ways to prevent cancer, detect the disease earlier and develop novel treatments to stop disease progression.

Cedars-Sinai has a robust research laboratories program. The following laboratories specifically focus on women's cancer:

  • Lawrenson Laboratory: Kate Lawrenson,  PhD , assistant OB-GYN professor, focuses her research team’s efforts on the early detection of ovarian cancer and improved treatments.
  • Orsulic Laboratory: The research efforts of OB-GYN Professor Sandra Orsulic, PhD , focus on the growth and progression of ovarian cancer, including the role of genetic mutations.
