About Clinical Trials

Is a clinical trial right for you?

The term “clinical trials” may seem intimidating at first, but at Markey Cancer Center we’re here to help answer your questions.

When you or a loved one is diagnosed with cancer, participating in a clinical trial may be an option to consider. Cancer clinical trials help to test and advance:

  • Cancer prevention.
  • New ways to find or diagnose cancer, especially at early stages.
  • Discover new treatment options.
  • Management of side effects from cancer treatment.

What we will know about cancer tomorrow may be available today as a clinical trial or research study and, in some cases, be developed right here at Markey.  

Watch the video below to hear UK researchers, physicians and patients explain why clinical trials are so important to the University of Kentucky...and beyond.
