What are clinical research studies?

Clinical research studies are projects involving people that answer specific health questions. Research studies help find new treatments, new ways of using established treatments, observe how people are affected by different factors, and even learn more about medicine and healthcare from the patient’s point of view. Many of the treatments and therapies used today are the result of research studies. Clinical trials are research studies used to determine whether new drugs or treatments are safe and effective.

At University Hospitals Clinical Research Center, our mission is to grow research and scientific innovation to improve patient care responsibly. Our vision is that every patient entering the UH system has an option to learn about and participate in a research study.
