Cancer clinical trials provide access to potential advancements in care and lead to medical innovations in cancer prevention and treatment. These trials also may be a patient's best chance for increased survival.

At the Clinical Research Center, we conduct clinical trials designed to identify safer and more effective approaches to prevention, screening, diagnosis and treatment of cancer.

The goals of the Phase I Oncology Unit are:

  • introduce to the market cancer drugs that are more effective and less toxic
  • offer more options to patients seeking hope
  • develop stronger partnerships with referring physicians
  • gain national program recognition

The Clinical Research Center is an important piece of the puzzle for the Cancer Center's effort to achieve National Cancer Center Institute designation, which would position KU and its partners at the forefront of cancer research, treatment and possible cures.
