Lee Health Cancer Institute recognizes the importance of research and its impact on our patients.  We offer clinical trials (research studies) for various cancer diagnoses.  Participation is voluntary, and though there are many clinical trials available, not all clinical trials are right for all patients. Each trial has a defined protocol that outlines the rules for who can participate in the trial. These rules are called eligibility criteria.

Your physician would need to follow these rules in order to determine if you are eligible for a particular study.  Understanding the importance of research, if you are interested in participating in a clinical trial we encourage you to talk with your physician about the opportunities we have to offer.  You can also reach out to our research team for general information as well: Lee Health Clinical Research – 239-343-9660 or [email protected]
