UT Southwestern’s newly launched Find a Clinical Trial (FaCT) website uses a robust search feature to help potential participants and their physicians easily find trials of interest online. The information shown is populated directly by UT Southwestern’s Velos study management tool and our Institutional Review Board (IRB) online submission system. Once the IRB has approved a study for enrollment and if the study is openly recruiting patients, it automatically appears in FaCT. Patients and physicians have access to the details they need to learn more about open clinical trials at UT Southwestern and are provided with direct contact information for follow-up questions and registration. Visit simmonscancercenter.org to search UT Southwestern open clinical trials.
When conducting clinical trials, UT Southwestern’s most important responsibility is to protect research volunteers through well-designed protocols, a dedicated Institutional Review Board (IRB), and a carefully informed consent process. In addition to the Find a Clinical Trial resource, UT Southwestern’s Research Participant Advocate can help you:
- Find studies recruiting volunteers.
- Find information about a study.
- Communicate with the study team.
- Listen to your questions, concerns, and complaints and help you find answers.
