“Zora Neale Hurston once said, Research is formalized curiosity; It is poking and prying with a purpose. As librarian, it is my job to support that informational and educational purpose of discovery. The library serves as a purposeful avenue to research and life-long learning.”
Shannon Glover, MLIS, AHIP, Coordinator of Health Sciences Library
“When I used to work with first-year college students, I explained that it’s called REsearch because you need to keep asking, searching, evaluating, and revisiting the matter over and over again. Librarians are primarily involved in the searching phase–connecting researchers to the highest quality evidence available–but we also perform original research, and I look forward to engaging the process more.”

The Cancer Center at NGMC has been participating in cancer clinical trials since 1996, and we partner with a variety of nationally recognized research networks across the U.S. Our oncology research program was recognized in 2018 as a Top 5 Accruing Site for numbers of patients enrolled in clinical trials by SWOG (the Southwest Cancer Chemotherapy Study Group).
Our expert physicians specialize in medical, surgical, radiation and gynecologic oncology and offer cutting-edge clinical trial opportunities to our patients. Our portfolio includes trials for chemotherapy, radiation therapy and surgery for virtually all tumor sites including breast, lung and prostate cancers, three of the cancer types most often diagnosed. By offering clinical trials to patients, physicians and clinical staff in the Cancer Center are able to provide a variety of treatment options using state-of-the-art technology and resources.

“Research in pharmacy practice is important for many reasons! The research conducted in pharmacy over the years has highlighted novel pharmacotherapeutic ideas, formulary management practices, validation of pharmacy services, and quality/safety improvements, just to name a few. This information has been presented at the local, state, and national levels in an effort to share work from which others may benefit. The Department of Pharmacy is delighted to showcase the great work that is done by our team! ”
