The American Cancer Society Clinical Trials Matching Service is a free, confidential program that helps patients, their families and health care workers find clinical trials most appropriate to a patient's medical and personal situation.
The MCC is a statewide, broad-based partnership that strives to include all interested public and private organizations and provides a forum for collaboration (communication, coordination, and the sharing of resources) to reduce the burden of cancer among the residents of Michigan by achieving the Consortium's research-based and results-oriented cancer prevention and control priorities.

Our Goal is to SIGNIFICANTLY IMPROVE LIVES through cancer clinical trials and translational research.
We TEST new ways to prevent and treat cancer.
We STUDY ways to improve the care cancer patients receive, and improve quality of life for survivors once initial treatment ends - relieving pain, promoting physical and mental health, and creating better end-of-life care.
