Clinical Trials Day 2023

  • Clinical Trials Day is an annual opportunity to recognize the many individuals who make clinical trials possible, and to increase awareness of clinical research achievements and opportunities for collaboration. From those at the bench to those at the bedside, as well as the many who volunteer to take part in clinical studies, these individuals are #advancingdiscovery to bring about improved medical treatments for all. 

    This year we look forward to celebrating our second Clinical Trials Day in person, with a celebration hosted by the CCTS, Heersink School of Medicine, and the O'Neal Comprehensive Cancer Center. Although Clinical Trials Day officially falls on May 20th, we hope you'll join us Thursday, May 18th from 7:30-9:30am in the Wallace Tumor Institute lobby for breakfast, giveaways, and more as we seek to thank all those who make clinical research possible.
