EC Trial Finder

Experimental Cancer Trial Finder (EC Trial Finder) was launched to the first limited user group on 15th November 2018 and will be available for the rest of the ECMC network in December 2018.

What is it?

EC Trial Finder is a trial database which enables fast and easy search for early phase trials within the ECMC network and patient referral afterwards. It includes key searching criteria: age, location, molecular stratification and contact details of the recruiting site to quickly determine patient eligibility and slot availability. The project is currently in alpha phase. This is intended to be a pilot phase during which the core concept of the EC Trial Finder will be tested for viability, usability and usefulness.

Who is it for?

During the alpha phase access to the EC Trial Finder is for ECMC clinicians and other relevant staff members responsible for identifying suitable trials for their patients.

What are the potential benefits?

• Improved patient access to trials

• Increased opportunity for suitable trial identification and referrals within the ECMC network, including for trials which can be hard to recruit to

• Increased opportunity to enhance patient recruitment volumes and timelines

• Better visibility of clinical trial information across the ECMC network


The EC Trial Finder is delivered in collaboration with Cancer Research UK's Technology team.
