Cancer Clinical Trials

Sarasota Memorial Hospital’s Cancer Research department gives patients access to the latest global innovations in cancer research, with the benefit of being treated in their own community. Our local clinical trials are part of large-scale research studies that involve thousands of other patients in research centers across the nation. 

Our certified Cancer Research staff are specially trained to deliver safe patient care while educating and supporting their clinical-trial patients. Sarasota Memorial’s Institutional Review Board and the U.S. National Institutes of Health review all clinical trials to ensure safe and ethical research standards are followed.
