Black Hills Cardiovascular Research provides clinical research support for pharmaceutical, device, registry and investigator-initiated trial activity. Heart & Vascular Institute physicians and surgeons have participated in over 250 clinical trials (phase 1-4) in the past 20 years and collectively contributed over 10,000 patient years of clinical data. Participating physician investigators are reimbursed for their time and responsibility through RVU compensation.
Through clinical research, the community has access to treatments and devices before they are commonly available. When a new treatment is approved, physicians use clinical trial experience to quickly move innovations into standard practice.
There are currently 45 active trials and over 600 active participant volunteers.
Call (605) 755-4326 if you are interested in any of our clinical trials.

Cancer Care Research
John T. Vucurevich Cancer Care Institute conducts clinical trials (research studies) with patients to prevent, detect, diagnose, and treat cancers. Clinical trials are also used to study the psychological impact of cancer and to help improve patient comfort and quality of life.
The physicians at the Cancer Care Institute participate with NCI’s National Clinical Trial Network (NCTN), Academic and Community Cancer Research United (ACCRU), Alliance Foundation (AFT), and GOG Foundation clinical trials. Additional clinical trial research opportunities are available through partnerships with major pharmaceutical companies.
Patients who take part in clinical trials have a unique opportunity to receive the most advanced care available — either with a new treatment or with the best standard therapy (the one to which the new approach is being compared).
Call (605) 755-2370 if you are interested in cancer care clinical trials. Patients interested in clinical trials can also discuss this option with their physician.
