Clinical Trials

Mayo Clinic offers dozens of clinical trials for melanoma that are open to participants for enrollment.

Part of Mayo Clinic's commitment to its patients involves conducting medical research that can help people live longer, healthier lives. Clinical trials are research studies that involve volunteer participants. These human studies help physician-scientists better understand, diagnose, treat and prevent diseases and conditions.

Mayo Clinic's clinical trials related to melanoma include studies of new drugs in development, stress management techniques, families at high risk of melanoma, DNA markers for melanoma, immune therapy in melanoma survivors, and many more.

Mayo Clinic also has thousands of other active clinical trials and research studies, and it coordinates national clinical trials with other medical institutions.
