Emory Proton Therapy Center Registry Study & Clinical Trials

Through Winship, we are proud to offer clinical trials which provide our patients with access to cutting-edge care that is often not available elsewhere. We are dedicated to advancing cancer care through groundbreaking research in new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat diseases.

Registry Study

All patients are asked to participate in our multi-institutional registry study. Participation in the Emory proton registry study allows us to maintain periodic long-term contact after treatment ends, even if you are not able to return in person. Working with other proton therapy centers across the country, we can better understand the benefits of proton therapy in different diseases, develop additional evidence that supports the value of proton therapy in different conditions, and help us make better decisions about the type of treatments we use on future patients.

Clinical Trials

You may be eligible to participate in proton therapy clinical trials at the Emory Proton Therapy Center. Clinical trials are a form of research designed to help answer specific questions about your disease. Some trials allow patients access to novel treatments that are not yet available through standard clinical practice. Other trials compare new approaches to surgery, drug therapies, or radiation therapy. Many trials also evaluate the quality of life of patients with cancer.

During consultation, your physician will discuss any clinical trials that you may be eligible to participate in, and discuss the purpose, risks, and potential benefits of the trial.

Participation in proton therapy clinical trials is voluntary. Patients enrolled in clinical trials often receive extra care coordination and attention from the clinical trials staff. Participation in clinical trials can also help researchers find better treatments for others in the future, just as today’s patients benefit from the advancements in treatment that were made in past clinical trials.
