NEXT Austin

Bringing the newest therapies to cancer patients in the greater Austin area

About Us

At NEXT Oncology, our goal is to offer hope through Phase I clinical trials to those with advanced cancer and may be not responding to traditional treatment.

Phase I clinical trials are research studies that test how well new medical approaches and treatments work in people and are usually the initial testing of a new treatment in a clinical setting.

Each study answers scientific questions focused on finding better methods to prevent, screen, diagnose or treat cancer.
