Precision Cancer Medicine in the New Home of The James

Because researchers and clinicians at The Ohio State University understand that there is no routine cancer, their approach to treating this disease differs from how cancers were treated years ago. Read More

Because researchers and clinicians at The Ohio State University understand that no two cancers are alike and that there is no routine cancer, their approach to treating this disease differs from how cancers were treated years ago. In the past, cancers were characterized solely by their location - breast, lung, prostate, etc. However, in the past 10 years, researchers and oncologists have learned that cancer can also be classified by genetic changes.

Surgical Oncology in the New Home of The James

The new home of the James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute – opening in December 2014 – will contain one of the largest surgical floors in the country. Read More

The new home of the James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute – opening in December 2014 – will be the third-largest freestanding cancer hospital in the United States and will contain one of the largest surgical floors in the country. The size of the facility, coupled with the experienced clinical, surgical and support staff, will enable experts at the new James to handle a large volume of surgical patients and essentially any solid tumor problem that a patient might have.

5 Sneak Peeks at the New Home of The James [Part 3]

Our vision to create a cancer-free world, one person, one discovery at a time, will become a reality only through the integration of research into clinical cancer care. Read More

Our vision to create a cancer-free world, one person, one discovery at a time, will become a reality only through the integration of research into clinical cancer care. These sneak peeks inside the new home of the The James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute will demonstrate how discoveries in the lab translate to improved patient care for even our sickest patients.

Pelotonia-Supported Genomic Sequencing Provides Targeted Cancer Therapies

Jared Gordon thought he had a bad cold. But after he couldn’t kick the sickness for a month, he went to the doctor for tests that revealed the true source of his prolonged illness: stage 4 lung cancer. Read More

Jared Gordon thought he had a bad cold. But after he couldn’t kick the sickness for a month, he went to the doctor for tests that revealed the true source of his prolonged illness: stage 4 lung cancer. The tumor had spread to the lining of his lungs and surrounding lymph nodes. The 51-year-old single father of three was told he had six months to live. But Gordon decided to get a second opinion at the OSUCCC – James, where the lung cancer team offers next generation genomic sequencing of lung tumors. Read More

There Is No Routine Lung Cancer

A revolution in lung cancer treatment is happening at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC – James). Read More

A revolution in lung cancer treatment is happening at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC – James). Our research is proving that lung cancer is not solely defined by location and stage, but rather the individual molecules and genes that drive each patient’s unique cancer. Simply put, there is no routine lung cancer. Read More

There Is No Routine Cancer

Just as no two people are exactly the same, neither are their cancers. Each patient’s cancer is fueled by different elements that help cancer cells develop, survive, invade and grow. Read More

Just as no two people are exactly the same, neither are their cancers. Each patient’s cancer is fueled by different elements that help cancer cells develop, survive, invade and grow. These elements – or genetic differences – are the reason there is no routine cancer. Researchers and oncologists at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC – James) are using genomic sequencing to study the unique genetic makeup of each patient's cancer.

New Discovery in Lung Cancer Holds Added Promise for Patients

One novel idea. Sometimes that’s all it takes to change a life. And sometimes, it just might save one. Read More

One novel idea. Sometimes that’s all it takes to change a life. David Carbone, MD, PhD, who was recruited to Ohio State to establish a Thoracic Oncology Center at the university’s Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research institute (OSUCCC – James), knows this firsthand. It was his idea that saved a patient’s life and changed what the experts look for when analyzing a patient’s tumor. Read More
