Clinical Research and Clinical Trials

Our clinical research and trials are carefully controlled. These trials—and their participants—are responsible for helping further our medical knowledge and eventually helping people across our state, nation and world. 

General Research Interests

Clinical trials are extremely important in studying the safety and effectiveness of a particular treatment. Our trials are carefully controlled and follow specific protocols to help ensure our volunteers' safety. We conduct trials in:

  • Neurology
  • Neuropsychiatry and behavioral science research
  • Neurosurgery 


Find a Clinical Trial 

The only way for a clinical trial to be successful is to have people who are willing to participate. Participants can help further medical knowledge and potentially help other people. If you're interested in participating in a clinical trial, you can find one and apply through the governmental clinical trial database
