NCI in partnership with the White House Presidential Innovation Fellows (PIFs), announced a plan for re-designing how patients and oncologists find and understand information about available NCI-supported cancer clinical trials.

To support this, Clinical Trials Ideas,, launched a website to gather ideas from patients, caregivers, advocates, health professionals and technical partners on how to make cancer clinical trials information easy to find, recommend and use.  

The goal is to ensure that patients and their care teams can access the information they need at the right time to strengthen participation in cancer research. While clinical trials may not be the best treatment option for every cancer patient, many patients, providers, and caregivers could benefit from understanding what options are available and having appropriate clinical trials offered and explained as an option in their cancer care.

Check out the search page and the prototype API,, and give us your ideas and feedback by August 30, 2016.
