Participation in a Clinical Trial

The involvement of UC and its neurology physicians in research studies is crucial to understanding diseases and developing new ways to understand, prevent or treat health problems.

Research studies, or trials as they are often called, depend on volunteers who agree to be part of carefully controlled tests that measure the effects of medications, medical treatments or devices. By volunteering, you can further medical knowledge and potentially help others.

The UC Neurology Department is conducting the following clinical trials:

Stroke  |  Epilepsy  |  Multiple Sclerosis  |  Neuromuscular  |   Parkinson's/Movement Disorders  | Headache  |  Pediatric Neurology
