The UNC Cancer Network Clinical Trials facility coordinates the enrollment of patients onto clinical trials that are being conducted in a network of medical centers across North Carolina.

The focus is on development of clinical trials in NC that are appropriate and useful to physicians and patients at many sites around the State.

The Network was established to expand the availability and access to clinical trials for all the people of North Carolina.  The Network has evolved from an informal collaboration of community physicians into an organization of hospitals and oncology practices that participate in innovative studies of emerging new treatments.

Network affiliates serve a vital role by helping to conduct clinical research to improve the cancer care of tomorrow and to provide patients in their communities’ access to these novel therapies. The Network has become a major force in cancer research, publishing numerous manuscripts and abstracts in medical journals and presenting results of studies at national and international meetings.

The Mission of the UNC Cancer Network in clinical research is to develop a network of community-based hematologist/oncologists to collaborate in testing novel therapeutics that will lead the way for better outcomes in the future, while also allowing more North Carolinians to participate in these trials in their own communities.

UNC serves as an educational and research resource from which novel Phase II trials evolve and are tested. This network will complement the NCI funded Cooperative Group system.

UNC Cancer Network Clinical Trials are administered by the UNC Cancer Network office.
