Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are research studies that test new treatments to find more effective ways to treat cancer. A lung cancer clinical trial is an important option to consider when making decisions about lung cancer treatment. Your cancer team can answer questions and provide information to help you make an informed decision about participating in lung cancer research through clinical trials.

Visit Winship Cancer Institute’s lung cancer clinical trials page to get information about clinical trials that are currently underway.

Lung Cancer Mutation Consortium

Emory is also participating in a national study offering advanced lung-cancer patients free screenings of their tumors for genetic mutations, some of which might be targets for treatment with existing or experimental therapies. Study participants will have their tumors tested at no cost to them and will have access to their results. Participants will also be counseled about any clinical trials that investigate their specific tumor mutations.
