Clinical Trials

A recent diagnosis or suggestion by a physician may have prompted you to learn more about participating in a clinical trial. Choosing to participate in a clinical trial is an important personal decision. This site provides introductory information about clinical trials. In addition, it is often helpful to talk to a physician, family members, or friends about deciding to join a trial. After identifying some trial options, the next step is to contact the study research staff and ask questions about specific trials.

The Erlanger Institute for Clinical Research was formed to create a single-source for information regarding the many clinical trials being conducted across the Erlanger Health System. Please contact the institute with any questions relating to current or future trials.
