Cancer Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are research studies that help us find new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer. When you participate in a clinical trial, you receive access to promising new treatments that have the potential to change the lives of patients today – and in the future.

At the MCW Cancer Center, our scientists and physicians currently enroll patients on over 200 active cancer clinical trials, the largest in the state of Wisconsin. Our center is also home to the region’s only Translational Research Unit, a designated space designed to provide the optimal care of patients in early-phase clinical trials.
