For patients and the public


11/05/2020 update: The National Lung Matrix Trial is still open to recruitment nationally, but unfortunately, many of the participating hospitals have suspended recruitment to the study due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is due to a combination of stretched resources and the increased risk of infection for vulnerable cancer patients when visiting hospital. If you are interested in taking part in the trial, and are currently being treated at (or near) one of our participating hospitals, this should be discussed with your oncologist in the first instance. If you are potentially eligible for the study, your oncologist will be able to advise if your hospital are currently recruiting new patients to the study, or whether a referral to a nearby hospital may be possible.


"I’m always amazed and heartened by patients’ willingness to enter clinical trials, as well as their families’ amazing support. They’re central to everything we do. Without clinical trials, advances in medicine wouldn’t be possible" 

Professor Gary Middleton, Chief Investigator of the National Lung Matrix Trial
