Finding Clinical Trials

A new resource from NBTS will make it easier for brain tumor patients to find up-to-date information on clinical trials, enabling patients to better engage with medical research and make more informed decisions about their own treatment options in the era of precision medicine.

We are proud to release our NBTS Clinical Trial Finder, which is designed specifically to connect brain tumor patients with open trials that might be suitable and advantageous treatment options to consider.
