Clinical trials are structured research studies conducted to answer specific questions concerning new therapies, devices, vaccines, or ways of using known treatments.
At the University of Chicago Medicine, we are committed to advancing biomedical innovation and furthering the knowledge of healthcare professionals. We put this commitment into practice every day by conducting clinical trials. We are a leader in clinical trials -- performing more than any other hospital in Illinois.
Our research helps healthcare professionals around the country -- and around the world -- to better treat many diseases, conditions, and disorders. Plus, it gives our patients access to new treatments and therapies.
