Brain Cancer: Information for Patients

At UCLA, comprehensive care for brain and nervous system cancer is provided through the Division of Neuro-Oncology. 

The Division offers a wide variety of support services. Patients and their caregivers have access to extensive clinical social care services, including dedicated clinical social workers and educational materials to help inform patients and family members about this disease and available treatment options.

Clinical care for the Program is facilitated primarily by the UCLA Neuro-Oncology Clinic. (See our location map for more directions.)

Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are carefully controlled research studies in which cancer patients help doctors and scientists find ways to improve health and cancer care, and to make sure the treatments are safe and effective. Each study is designed to address and answer specific scientific questions and to find better ways to prevent, diagnose or treat cancer. A clinical trial is one of the final stages resulting from the research conducted during intensive and lengthy laboratory studies.

If you are interested in finding out more about these studies, contact:
