Find cancer clinical trials currently open at Baylor College of Medicine.

With five affiliated hospitals and patient care centers treating different patient populations, Dan L Duncan Comprehensive Cancer Center members have access to an exceptionally strong patient base for clinical and translational research.

We continue to make valuable advancements into improved patient care through research, expediting the transfer of laboratory findings to bedside therapies. Our focus on conducting innovative clinical trials enables us to learn more about how drug therapies are working at a molecular level early on, so that we may more quickly apply new medications to benefit broader patient populations.

For our patients, participation in these clinical trials provides an opportunity to take part in the cancer discovery process while receiving expert medical care from investigators that rank among the leading specialists in their fields.
