The University of Kentucky Markey Cancer Center has joined the Oncology Research Information Exchange Network® (ORIEN), a personalized medicine consortium that allows its members to exchange data and push forward evidence-based cancer care to patients. Markey is the latest addition to this 17-member research partnership, which includes many of the top cancer centers in the nation.
“It takes teamwork to make great progress in cancer treatments,” said Dr. Mark Evers, director of the UK Markey Cancer Center. “Markey has always subscribed to this idea, utilizing the resources from a variety of experts across UK’s clinical and academic campuses to treat our patients. This new partnership with ORIEN™ will allow us to collaborate with some of the best cancer centers across the country, exchanging vital information back and forth that will ultimately lead to new, improved treatments becoming available for Kentuckians.”
