Childhood Cancer Clinical Trials and Research

Submit request or call to make an appointment.

Norton Children’s Cancer Institute, affiliated with the UofL School of Medicine, actively participates in pediatric oncology clinical trials and research. Norton Children’s Cancer Institute is a long-standing member of the Children’s Oncology Group, the world’s largest group of hospitals treating children with cancer. These hospitals follow the same best practices, protocols and therapy regimens for childhood cancer treatment. This means children from across the country have access to the same clinical trials offering the latest treatments while working to decrease possible long-term effects.

Norton Children’s Cancer Institute also is part of the Beat Childhood Cancer research consortium. The consortium is a group of 40-plus universities and children’s hospitals offering a worldwide network of childhood cancer research trials coordinated by Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

These trials are based on the work of a group of researchers connected with laboratory programs that develop new therapies for high-risk pediatric cancers — all with the goal of finding a cure.
