Cancer Clinical Trials Portal

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.
