For Researchers and Clinicians

Icon’s clinical trials program is led by a number of credentialed clinicians from haematology and oncology specialties across four Icon day hospitals. Icon works in partnership with various pharmaceutical sponsors and Icon doctors to fund access to clinical trials for public patients. We are committed to ensuring the latest treatment options are open to all patients regardless of their health insurance status.

We work with various clinicians on investigator driven studies and welcome applications from external researchers and clinicians. For researchers and clinicians, Icon follows a number of potential pathways to determine whether the research is relevant, feasible or appropriate for our patients and clinics and may follow either the Investigator Initiated Activation Pathway or the Remote Access to Clinical Trials Pathway.
