Clinical Research for Patients

Clinical research allows us to transform patient care, improve quality of life and finally, to find a cure. This is not possible without study participants, crucial partners in the important research we perform. You can make a difference by volunteering for clinical studies.

Patients may benefit from study participation by receiving study medications, exams, tests or other medical care, often at no charge. Many studies also need healthy volunteers so friends and family can also participate.
