Clinical and Observational Trials

Clinical trials (also known as interventional trials) are medical research studies that help us find new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer. Participating in a trial creates access to promising new treatments that have the potential to change the lives of patients today – and in the future.

A Robust Portfolio of Cancer Clinical Trials

Our cancer scientists and physicians currently enroll patients on over 260+ active cancer clinical trials, the largest clinical trial treatment program in Wisconsin.

The Importance of Diversity in Clinical Trials

The Medical College of Wisconsin and our partners are committed to reducing and eventually eliminating health disparities, creating more positive outcomes for a diversity of people living in Eastern Wisconsin. If you’re eligible for a clinical trial and decide that’s the next best step for you, we’ll work to ensure you have the support needed to participate.

Eradicating cancer means investigating how cancer impacts everyone – regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, or economic status – and discovering treatments for all types of patients. Cancer investigators (the physicians and researchers producing clinical trials) collect more reliable data when more people participate in a clinical trial. The more patients who qualify increase the chances the study will reflect the outcomes of the real-world population that will eventually use the new therapy.

Simply put, your participation in clinical trials directly impacts the potential for a therapy or intervention to be effectively improved and considered as a first line treatment for others in your community.
