What is a Clinical Trial?

Clinical trials are research studies that set out to discover if a new medical treatment is safe and effective for a particular condition. The results from these studies can help advance our understanding of a new drug, medical device, or strategy, both for an individual and the group at large.

Why Participate?

Participating in a clinical trial allows you to receive cutting edge medical treatment that is not yet available to the public, while also helping to advance science and medicine for the greater good. Participants are often compensated for their time and travel as well.


There are a variety of factors that determine whether or not you are eligible to participate in a particular clinical trial. Particular guidelines, called Inclusion/Exclusion criteria, are set by researchers in advance depending on the treatment being tested. To find out your eligibility, it’s best to contact our team.
