UVM Cancer Center Clinical Trials Office

Clinical trials connect patients with cutting-edge treatment options while also advancing knowledge and care for cancer patients everywhere. Your physicians, nurses and staff make up the clinical research team that collaboratively focus on offering the very best care for you and your family. Nearly all current prevention, detection, treatment, and supportive care options available today have come to us thanks to clinical trials research.

The University of Vermont Cancer Center Clinical Trials Office (CTO) supports ground-breaking cancer research advancements by facilitating collaborative, high-quality clinical and translational research (applying what we've learned in the lab to clinical trials) aimed at enhancing the prevention, detection and treatment of cancer.

The CTO upholds the highest standards of clinical research by ensuring patient safety, regulatory compliance, and data integrity, while enhancing the lives of those at risk for and affected by cancer.
