Inspired innovation

Designed unlike any other research facility in the country, The University of Kansas Clinical Research Center has state-of-the-art features to best accommodate clinical trial participants and researchers. All medical and nursing staff are trained in oncology and clinical trial patient care. The new center provides a central location to enhance collaboration between researchers and clinical staff caring for participants.

The building conveniently houses all clinical research functions formerly spread across multiple locations. Bio analytical lab and clinical lab facilities are on site for proper specimen management, a vitally important element in the effort to cure cancer.

Designed to facilitate promising new drugs from the lab to the clinic, the center offers new options to community physicians and their patients who may have exhausted treatment options elsewhere.
