Congratulations to the WVU Clinical trials Research Unit (CTRU) and Dr. Adham Salkeni, WVU’s principal investigator for the NRG Oncology group, the largest clinical trials collaborative network in the United States. During the recent biannual meeting of the NRG, our CTRU was recognized as among the top ten main member sites to enroll the most patients on cancer clinical trials between January and June 2017. “This places WVU on the national map for clinical trials accrual,” Salkeni said. “This shows that we offer state-of-the-art research studies that examine the role of targeted therapies for the treatment of a wide variety of cancers that affect our patient population.”
