Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are the foundation of our research. These important studies test the effectiveness of new medical approaches and treatments.

Each study answers specific questions and tries to find better ways to prevent, screen for, diagnose and treat disease.

As a study participant, you will directly help us understand a specific disease better, which may lead to important advances in science, medicine and technology

  • Find a Clinical Trial via ClinicalTrials.gov

      Frequently Asked Questions

      What are clinical trials, and why are they important? 
      Clinical trials are research studies that test the effectiveness of new medical approaches and treatments. Each study answers specific questions and tries to find better ways to prevent, screen for, diagnose and treat disease.

      Will I have to make extra trips or visits?
      All clinical trials monitor patients closely, which may require extra visits. For specific information, contact the clinical research coordinator.

      Will I be treated here or can it be done locally?
      Some clinical trials may offer additional locations closer to your home. Ask your nurse or doctor if there are other locations for the trial. For specific information, contact the clinical research coordinator.

      Will I be paid for mileage and hotel costs?
      Some clinical trials reimburse travel costs. For more information, contact the clinical research coordinator.

      How many people have been in this study?
      Because every clinical trial is different, only the clinical research coordinator or doctor for your study can answer this question. 

      What are the side effects of the treatment?
      During your first visit, your doctor will discuss the treatment details and possible side effects. 

      Is this trial going to help me?
      We don’t know if you will benefit from participating in a clinical trial. However, we hope that in the future, other people might benefit from the knowledge gained in this study.
