Clinical Trials at Markey

At the University of Kentucky Markey Cancer Center, we are advancing cancer care and research to prevent, detect and treat one patient at a time. As a patient at Markey, you have a team of people looking at your individual case, applying the most recent cancer knowledge to give you the best chance of survival.

Clinical Trials are research studies aimed at evaluating medical, surgical, or behavioral interventions to determine if a new treatment is safe and effective. At Markey, we have several clinical trials and research studies open at any one time. In fact, through our Research Network, we offer patients access to clinical trials in multiple locations in Kentucky and West Virginia, serving the people of Kentucky and Appalachia close to home. 

Markey has more open clinical trials than any other cancer center in the region, giving you access to some of the most advanced options available.

Learn how clinical trials help researchers do the type of research that can help heal Kentuckians and move the entire state forward.
