Join a Clinical Trial

Clinical trials are a pillar in The University of Kansas Cancer Center's mission to conquer all cancers. Dr. Roy Jensen

Vice chancellor and director of The University of Kansas Cancer Center

Dr. Roy Jensen: At The University of Kansas Cancer Center, we are always looking for ways to develop new therapies, improve quality of life, and discover more cures for cancer. Clinical trials play an essential role in helping the millions of Americans who are diagnosed with cancer each year. Clinical trials are research studies that involve people and test new ways to prevent, detect, diagnose, or treat diseases. Nearly all cancer treatments used today were studied and made available to patients through clinical trials. As the only National Cancer Institute-Designated Cancer Center in the region, we offer a wide range of leading-edge trials that are not available anywhere else. By participating in a clinical trial, you have access to potentially effective treatments not available elsewhere. Talk to your doctor to see if a clinical trial is right for you.
