You can play a vital role in advancing medical knowledge that could benefit millions of people. Clinical trials offer you a chance to contribute to the future of cancer medicine—and potentially benefit your own health.
Clinical trials, often called clinical or research studies, are the front lines of cancer science. By investigating new drugs, devices and therapies, medical researchers discover better ways to treat this pervasive and varied disease. Most of today’s standard cancer treatments got their start in clinical trials.
Since the 1950s, research centers within the Sutter Health network have conducted hundreds of groundbreaking studies leading to medical innovations in cancer treatment. Sutter Cancer Centers, Sutter Institute for Medical Research (SIMR) and Sutter Neuroscience Institute (SNI) offer clinical trials backed by a supportive research department.
We pursue discovery through partnerships with federal agencies such as the National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Health and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. We also partner with local entities, as well as pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers.
