The Oncology Clinical Research Department under the direction of Dr. Anna Sobol strives to offer opportunities for our mountain community to participate in research. Having studies that are open and accruing enables a greater number of High Country residents to participate in research.
Dr. Anna Sobol is the Principal Investigator for all currently open studies. Marjorie Hrozencik RN, BSN, OCN, CCRP serves as Clinical Research Coordinator.
Seby B. Jones Regional Cancer Center is a research affiliate site for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. We partner with UNC-CH to conduct research trials.
