Resources for Research Participants
Clinicaltrials.gov provides regularly updated information about federally and privately supported clinical research in human volunteers. The website gives you information about a trial's purpose, who may participate, locations, and phone numbers for more details.
Cancer.gov is part of the National Cancer Institute (NCI), the federal government's principal agency for cancer research. Patients and their loved ones, advocates, health professionals, researchers, and anyone else interested in cancer will find a wide range of authoritative cancer information here.
