UH Cancer Center seeks to increase clinical trial levels

SRL is featured in a recent KHON2 story on the clinical trials at the University of Hawaiʻi Cancer Center. The photo features the BodPod, one of the machines in our Body Composition Lab. Our lab is an important resource for many researchers conducting clinical trials at UHCC, including our own studies such as Shape Up!, which is actively recruiting participants.

Currently, there are 85 different clinical trials at UHCC, so they are seeking to ramp up patient participation as they hire new staff to accommodate these patients and implement new strategies to ensure success of the trials.

UHCC dedicates much of its efforts to engaging multi-ethnic populations which, according to UHCC, is underrepresented in clinical trials across the country. These multi-ethnic participants expand the breadth of knowledge that researchers have on cancer.
