Clinical Trials

Working together to improve patient outcomes.

Advancing Care For The Future

Thedacare’s Cancer Care Research Program provides patients access to clinical trials which offer the potential of improving outcomes and contributing to scientific progress. Through your participation, we are able to gain additional knowledge and expertise that allow us to advance care and treatment options for you and future patients.

What We Do

The National Cancer Institute Community Oncology Research Program (NCORP) is a national network that brings cancer clinical trials and care delivery studies to people in their own communities.

ThedaCare partners with Marshfield Clinic Health System and Gunderson Health System to form WINCORP (Wisconsin National Community Oncology Program) with the goal of providing access to the latest in cancer clinical research to patients in the Northeast Wisconsin area.

To that end, we have opened 42 clinical trials, 33 of which are testing novel treatments in a variety of cancers. We continue to grow and increase our trial portfolio and are actively expanding access to our satellite cancer centers.

This year we are proud to announce the launch of the Precision Medicine Program. Our Precision Medicine Coordinator closely collaborates with the University of Wisconsin-Madison Carbone Cancer Center to submit genomic testing results of all cancer patients for expert review from the Precision Medicine Molecular Tumor Board. Their recommendations, including suggestions for potential clinical trial enrollment are then communicated to the patient and their clinical team.

Who We Are

We have a growing research team comprised of a medical director, manager, clinical research specialists, nurses and administrative staff.
