Clinical Trials

Cross Cancer Institute Clinical Trial Unit (CCI CTU)

The mission of the CCI CTU is to initiate and conduct clinical trials that improve the lives of current and future cancer patients. The CCI CTU has more than 60 qualified investigators across multiple health disciplines, employs 56 clinical trial nurses and clinical trial co-ordinators with tumor group specific expertise and has an efficient administrative core funded by the Alberta Cancer Foundation.

The CCI CTU places more than 600 people with cancer on new cancer treatments (the highest per capita accrual in Canada), including local investigator initiated studies and first in human drug testing. We contribute to many practice-changing global studies and save the Alberta health care system nearly $10M CND in drug costs every year.
