Stand Up to Cancer (SU2C) has bestowed a two-year, $550,000 grant to fund a new program at the USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center that will facilitate access to cancer clinical trials for patients in underserved communities. The grant is sponsored by the SU2C Diversity in Early Development Clinical Trials Research Grants Program, part of SU2C’s Health Equity Initiative.

USC Norris will lead a project named Eliminating Enrollment Barriers to Early Phase Trials in a Diverse Population in Los Angeles County, which will focus on identifying and removing such barriers, determining the potential positive impact of remote clinical trials on enrollment, and helping to develop strategies for improving community engagement.
