Baptist Cancer Center Clinical Trials

The Baptist Cancer Center conducts clinical trials to ensure the advancement of our research efforts to help expand and improve our approach to cancer treatment. The cancer clinical trials cover a variety of cancers including breast oncology, head and neck oncology, experimental therapeutics program and malignant hematology program.

Institutional Review Board (IRB)

The Baptist Memorial Health Care Corporation-Institutional Review Board (BMHCC-IRB) is a committee of physicians, statisticians, researchers, community advocates and others that ensures a clinical trial is ethical and the rights of study participants are protected.

By federal regulation, all clinical trials in the U.S. must be approved by an IRB before they begin. At Baptist, the IRB initially approves and periodically reviews the research in order to protect the rights of human participants.

All research studies performed using any Baptist facility must be reviewed by the BMHCC-IRB. All research proposals must be submitted to the IRB two (2) weeks prior to the next scheduled meeting (see schedule below). Four (4) weeks prior to study expiration date is suggested for renewals. Please download the appropriate documents for your submission.
