Cancer research close to home
Through our Cancer Research Center, patients gain access to research at their community hospital or clinic. We offer clinical trial opportunities to patients at all HealthPartners and Park Nicollet cancer clinic locations including Frauenshuh Cancer Center and Regions Cancer Care Center. Through clinician expertise and strong collaboration with our clinic and hospital partners, we advance the science of cancer treatment and care delivery—close to home.

Clinical cancer research
Providing clinical trials as an option for patients with cancer is a vital step in advancing knowledge. Clinical trials may answer important scientific questions and suggest future research directions. Thanks to progress made through clinical trials, many people treated for cancer are living longer and enjoying a better quality of life.
We offer trials to help prevent, screen for, diagnose, and treat cancer and manage the side effects of treatment and the symptoms of the disease. These trials range from Phase I trials, the first step in testing a new treatment in humans, to Phase IV trials.
