Since that time more than 3,000 Rhode Islanders have been treated on BrUOG trials at area hospitals. BrUOG's main mission is to improve cancer care through the implementation of innovative, multidisciplinary cancer clinical trials. Before BrUOG was founded, there was no unifying body for such research through which Brown's myriad scientists and physicians could share their ideas on the treatment of cancer. The trials sponsored by BrUOG investigate novel, cutting-edge applications of chemotherapeutic agents, biologic agents, and other cancer treatments. Today besides the 5 Rhode Island main member hospitals, Rhode Island Hospital, The Miriam Hospital, Women and Infants Hospital, Roger Williams Hospital and Memorial Hospital, BrUOG studies are also implemented in 8 other states nationwide.
