Clinical Trials

Access advanced treatment and research.

At Novant Health Cancer Institute, we're always looking for new ways to detect, prevent and treat cancer. Clinical trials allow us to study new surgical procedures, build upon existing treatments and test new drugs, medical devices and therapies. That means, if eligible to participate in a cancer research trial, you might experience new approaches to treatment while improving cancer care for others in the future.

Novant Health clinical trials

We participate in national and international research designed to improve outcomes and reduce symptoms of cancer, including:

  • Early-phase clinical trials for cancer to establish drug safety with novel chemotherapies, immunotherapies and cellular therapies used for treating cancer and other illnesses
  • Studies of new imaging technology for cancer and other conditions
  • Innovative surgical procedures, such as minimally invasive surgery to shorten recovery times and promote healing
  • Pediatric studies for a range of conditions, including cancer, sickle cell disease, hemophilia and other blood disorders

What to expect

Volunteers like you help researchers develop cancer treatments that physicians and specialists rely on in the future. Every drug and device approved for use in the United States has been tested by volunteers in carefully controlled clinical trials.

Novant Health clinical trial research teams are made up of healthcare specialists, including physicians, nurses, study coordinators, data management and regulatory professionals. We partner with Institutional Review Boards to ensure all study volunteers have the information they need to make informed decisions about participating in a clinical cancer trial.

Participation in a research trial is a personal decision. If you want to participate in a clinical trial, speak to your care team. Your specialist will review with you the benefits and possible risks of participating.
