About CRAB > Why CRAB
CRAB is a non-profit organization, founded 20 years ago to play a unique and critical role in the battle against cancer. We have integrity and diversity of expertise needed to successfully advance clinical trials of promising new therapies. CRAB provides a rare breadth of expertise to ensure that clinical studies are conducted using the highest standards and that determine whether new cancer treatment and prevention techniques are safe and effective. In addition, our clinical trials can demonstrate who would benefit from what therapies, so that treatment can be personalized to the individual and thus both increase the likelihood of treatment success as well as reduce unnecessary and often burdensome treatment and associated side-effects. We have respect for the commitment made by every patient.
