Clinical trials

Every revolutionary medical discovery starts with clinical research. The vaccines, medicines, surgical procedures and therapies we rely on to keep us healthy, help us recover from sickness, injuries and diseases and resume our normal lives – they all exist because they were proven effective in clinical trials. At VCU Massey Cancer Center, volunteers from our public communities join our doctors and scientists in this research process and share the pride in helping to discover medical breakthroughs.

VCU Massey Cancer Center provides one of the largest selections of clinical trials in Virginia. We are continually evaluating the latest cancer therapies, with more than 100 studies on more than 20 types of cancer from brain and breast, to leukemia, prostate and more. Massey offers clinical studies developed and managed by Massey as well as studies developed and managed by other universities, cooperative research groups, government agencies, non-profit organizations and for-profit companies.
