A Study of Three-dimensional (3-D) Tissue Models in Patients with Serous Endometrial Cancer Planning to Undergo Surgery


About this study

The purpose of this research study is to learn more about serous endometrial cancer by creating three-dimensional (3-D) tissue models in the laboratory setting.  The tissue models will provide scientists with a reliable, sensitive method to test biomarkers and cellular responses to treatment for endometrial cancer.
