Paving the way for tomorrow’s cancer treatments

So many cancer clinical trials and research programs from yesterday are the treatments and cures of today. When you or a loved one is faced with a cancer diagnosis, you want access to the latest cancer trials, treatments and medicines.

You can help improve future cancer treatments while also gaining access to the latest care by participating in a clinical trial.

Because we participate in a number of national and international clinical research studies, you have an opportunity to receive the latest cancer treatment options. Our Novant Oncology Research Institute in Charlotte and Novant Clinical Research Institute in WInston-Salem, a collaboration of cancer centers across our footprint,  provides expanded access to clinical trials that advance cures while staying close to home.

Benefits of participating in clinical trials:

  • Healthcare provided by leading physicians in the field of cancer research
  • Access to new drugs and interventions before they are widely available
  • Close monitoring of your healthcare and any side effects
  • An opportunity to be the first to benefit from successful trials
  • An opportunity to make a valuable contribution to cancer research

Today, hundreds of cancer patients currently are involved in clinical trials. Participating in a clinical trial is a very personal decision. We encourage you to speak with your healthcare team and loved ones before deciding how you would like to proceed.

Current clinical trials - We have numerous clinical trials currently underway involving hundreds of patients. We update our list of clinical trials and availability on a monthly basis. See our current cancer clinical trials.
