Clinical Trials

Our Studies

A clinical trial is a research study that recruits patients to participate in health-related interventions to examine the effects on health outcomes. The types of these interventions can be any combination of drugs, surgical or radiological procedures, biological products, therapies, behavioral treatments, cells, devices, and more.

Clinical trials are a crucial part of our clinical research program, which seeks to determine the safety and effectiveness of these interventions. Trials focusing on your neurological disease may be researching how to prevent it, how to better diagnose it, or how to treat it.

The involvement of human participants in these trials allows researchers to turn basic research (done in labs) into new information, new treatments, and new practices, all with the goal of benefiting patients.
