Clinical Research – Multi-Specialty

Research has always been an important part of Sansum Clinic, as established by our pioneering founder Dr. William David Sansum - the first American to successfully isolate, produce and administer insulin to treat diabetes. Our Clinical Research department was formally created in 1993 to provide patients, physicians, and the community at large access to quality research studies in the safest and most efficient manner possible. We are devoted to providing world-renowned quality in research and medical care.

Cancer Research

Clinical Research leads to the development of improved treatments and advancements in oncology care that result in a better future for all cancer patients. Our physicians are involved in clinical trials that test the newest treatments and provide access for our patients to cutting-edge therapies here in our own community. The Clinical Research team reviews the medical records of our cancer patients to match promising new cancer therapies to eligible patients. Participation in clinical studies allows us to offer the best possible range of treatment options to our patients.
