Advancing Medicine Through Clinical Trials
Your opportunity to participate
As a patient, you may be eligible to participate in clinical research. Your doctor can help determine whether a clinical trial is right for you.
Medical research discovers ways to help people live longer, improve their quality of life and manage or cure disease. Improvements to care are possible because of the people who volunteer to participate in clinical research.
Research studies called clinical trials test how new medications or treatments work. Patients who participate have access to these new drugs and treatments. Clinical trials can also help physicians learn how to improve care for future patients.
Our clinical trials
Cancer clinical trials
Nearly all cancer treatments used today were studied and made available to patients through clinical trials. In the last 6 years alone, our researchers have advanced 7 new cancer drugs into clinical trials.
Heart care clinical trials
As a heart patient, you may have the opportunity to participate in clinical trials. These studies help develop new medications and procedures that may make a difference in your own care and the care of others.
