About the network

Working together to improve cancer patient outcomes in the Gulf South region

The Gulf South Clinical Trials Network is a group of hospitals and doctors in the Gulf South region that have joined together to provide local, convenient access to the most advanced clinical trials available today. With the help of the Gulf South Clinical Trials Network, cancer patients can take part in National Cancer Institute supported studies, closer to your home, family, and work.

History of the network
Formed in 2018, the Gulf South Clinical Trials Network is part of an NCORP grant funded by the National Cancer Institute to reach all cancer patients in the region, but especially those in minority and underserved communities. This experienced network of four leading health care and research groups in the region — LSU Health New Orleans, Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center, Ochsner Health, and LSU Health Shreveport — works to improve patient outcomes by expanding access to prevention and treatment studies as well as community outreach and education programs.

Through additional partnerships with other health providers across the region, we offer these vital resources at more than 50 locations. This has doubled the number of sites offering clinical trials in the Gulf South, allowing more patients and physicians access to cutting edge cancer treatments.
