Patients on Cancer Clinical Trials During COVID-19 Pandemic

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, cancer, unfortunately, doesn’t rest. Thankfully, neither do the cancer experts at Miami Cancer Institute. One of the hallmarks of our cancer program is access to the latest clinical trials. In part, that’s how we achieve the best outcomes possible. But whether you’re currently enrolled in a clinical trial or whether you’re newly diagnosed and considering a clinical trial as part of your treatment, you may be wondering if your clinical trial could be affected by the increased risk of COVID-19 infection. Scott Lipkin, DPM, Chief Research Officer at Miami Cancer Institute at Baptist Health South Florida, and his team work with cancer patients every day, helping them make the best decisions for their care and answering their questions about cancer clinical trials.

Clinical trials offer hope

Organized around nine cancer-specific research groups, the Cancer Institute’s Clinical Research Program is designed to focus on breakthrough research, discoveries and therapies.

The oncologic specialists are members of one of nine tumor site teams, and each Cancer Institute team is led by a dedicated physician and supported by highly trained clinical research staff. The Clinical Trials Office also supports these teams with centralized business operations and quality assurance measures.

Additionally, our close collaborations with our colleagues at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, along with our partnership in the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Alliance, as well as other partnerships and collaborations in novel clinical trials, mean the Cancer Institute offers you and your patients access to a broad range of leading-edge clinical trials – facilitating access to potentially promising new therapies not yet available to the general market.

Our unique collaborations – combined with the advanced technology utilized by our genomic center specialists – create a Clinical Trials program virtually unmatched by any other in South Florida and considered among one of the best in the nation.
