New Cancer Clinical Trials Portal Live

The Clinical Cancer Center at Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin Froedtert Hospital and the Clinical Trials Office is pleased to announce the launch of a brand-new cancer clinical trials portal.  This resource is located on the Froedtert & the Medical College website at

This portal is directly linked to our Clinical Trials Management System and therefore, uses live real-time data, providing patients and referring physicians with the most up-to-date information on over 130 cancer clinical trials available throughout the Froedtert & the Medical College Cancer Network, MCW and our affiliates.  This patient-friendly portal allows users to browse trials by disease type, conduct keyword searches, or conduct advanced searches by disease type or study location.  There is also a specific area highlighting early-phase trials.

This portal was developed through a close collaboration among the Froedtert & the Medical College Cancer Clinical Service Line, the MCW Cancer Center and Clinical Trials Office, as well as marketing and IT resources from both Froedtert & the Medical College health network & MCW. 

We encourage you to explore the portal and add a link to your department or division pages.  Please let us know if you need any support with that process. 

We are excited to share this new resource with you. Please feel free to share your feedback or questions you have about the portal.
