Clinical Trials

Clinical trials investigate new ways to prevent, diagnose, detect and treat cancer. There are many reasons why clinical trials can be beneficial.

The Truth About Clinical Trials

The comprehensive Lung Cancer Program at the University of Wisconsin Carbone Cancer Center sees more than 400 new patients a year who have a diagnosis of lung cancer.


Lung Cancer Patients at the UW Carbone Cancer Center have access to:

  • Advanced surgical, radiation and medical treatments, including minimally invasive procedures such as Video Assisted Thoracoscopic (VATS) Lobectomy, and VATS wedge resection with brachytherapy
  • A multidisciplinary team of specialists including medical, radiation and thoracic surgical oncologists, as well as pulmonologists, integrative health specialists and research associates
  • Groundbreaking "bench-to-bedside" clinical trials aimed at improving the understanding of lung cancer and increasing the effectiveness of therapies, including studies through the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group, one of the largest clinical cancer research organizations in the United States
