How does it work?

One you have registered with Cure Forward, a Clinical Trial Navigator will reach out to help you create a robust Cure Forward profile based on your overall medical information, personal preferences, and molecular data (when applicable).

You and your Clinical Trial Navigator are a team – partnering together is an important part of the process. Please view the documents you can expect to gather and sign on our Matching to a Clinical Trial page.

Using your profile, your Clinical Trial Navigator will present active clinical research trials to you and your doctor so you can evaluate all your options. All trial options will come directly to you through Cure Forward’s Clinical Trial Exchange. Your Clinical Trial Navigator will be here to help you through all of the logistics of reviewing and accepting a trial.
