Referring a patient to a clinical study

We encourage physicians or dentists in private practices, hospitals, clinical or other medical organizations to refer patients to clinical research protocols. Investigators who are actively recruiting participants for clinical studies submit summaries of studies that appear in the Clinical Trials list. The summaries indicate a contact for parties interested in learning more about the study. If a contact name does not appear, then the contact is the principal investigator.

Patients accepted to participate in a protocol must have a responsible understanding of their role in a research protocol and must be able to provide informed consent to participate. Patients (and/or their insurance company) may be asked to pay for tests and procedures that are standard care but won’t be asked to pay for tests and procedures performed for research purposes.

Please view our current clinical trial summaries here.
