Advancing the Cutting Edge of Cancer Care

While cancer care has already made tremendous progress, further innovation and research are necessary to develop and implement the next generation of therapeutics, best practices, disease preventions and specialized treatments targeted to the precise needs of the patient. Investigative research, including both “wet” translational and laboratory research as well as “dry” population health and value-based research, provides the ability to identify, develop and study new innovations in a real health system setting. The AdventHealth Cancer Institute participates in approximately 175 clinical trials each year, making it one of the most active sites for this kind of research in all of Florida.

Highlighted Cancer Trials

Through cancer trials, we hope to find new ways to improve patients’ cancer treatments and quality of life. Our clinical trials provide access to innovative and experimental therapies to patients with solid and circulating tumors, including through the National Cancer Institute’s Clinical Trials Network (NCTN). Our centralized clinical research team is comprised of research nurses, data managers, research assistants and regulatory coordinators.
