Research and Clinical Trials
Clinical trials and oncology research are instrumental at Memorial's Regional Cancer Center. By working with the Northern Indiana Cancer Research Consortium (NICRC), our patients have access to more than 100 national clinical trials. One of the best ways for Memorial to research cancer and its treatments is through clinical trials, like those funded through the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and performed with the help of the NICRC team. These trials test new therapies, look at new ways to give treatment, find out how lifestyle changes can help cancer patients or explore ways to keep cancer from recurring. More than 250 patients are enrolled in clinical studies each year through Memorial Hospital.
