More Clinical Trials. More Life-Saving Options.

For many patients, a clinical trial may offer a new, more hopeful path toward healing, such as a promising drug or alternative gene therapy. With over 175 clinical trials each year, AdventHealth Cancer Institute is one of the most active clinical trial sites in Florida.

A New Hope

At AdventHealth Cancer Institute, we explore every possible option to help you heal faster and make you feel better. One of the ways we do this is through clinical trials, experiential new therapies. As one of the most active clinical trial sites in Florida, we’re able to offer patients access to trials for all types of cancer, from brain and spine cancer to breast cancer and lung cancer. If your team believes that you may benefit and qualify for one of our clinical trials, whether it’s for a groundbreaking drug, an alternative therapy, or a new diagnostic test, they’ll help guide you to it along with your Nurse Navigator.
