The Clinical Trials Referral Office (CTRO) serves as a resource for reliable information about clinical trials and research studies offered at Mayo Clinic. We assist cancer patients, their families, caregivers, providers and the general public with study information for all types of cancer including areas such as cancer prevention, early detection and screening, symptom management, treatment, epidemiological studies, etc. and connect potential study participants with appropriate staff at our various Mayo Clinic locations. In addition, we provide internal and external resources for patients and their families as they search for opportunities that potentially fit their current needs.
