HERSTORY – Hereditary Exploration and Research for Screening and Testing for Oncology Risks in Women 

This is a multi-disciplinary prospective research study focused on understanding genetic, environmental, socio-economic, and other determinants of cancer in women with a family history of the disease.  Principal Investigators leading the project include Dr. Vivian Chang, Dr. Paul Boutros, and Dr. Beth Karlan, UCLA Gynecologic Oncology. 

UCLA OBGYN physicians are nationally and internationally recognized not only for their clinical expertise but also for their pioneering research. Our goal is to increase basic research and translate the findings into clinical trials.

What is a clinical trial? A clinical trial is a study conducted with actual patients, usually to evaluate a new treatment. Each study is designed to answer scientific questions and to find new and better ways to help our patients. Learn more about clinical trials: English PDF | Spanish PDF
