The University of Louisville is proud of the enormous strides we have made in Medical and Biomedical research over the last decade. Many discoveries highlighted by the national and international media are a result of work being done right here by a remarkable group of dedicated faculty researchers and clinicians.
These medical advances would not be possible without the participation of volunteers who help test the newest innovations in health promotion and health care. There is a need for both healthy volunteers and individuals with serious or chronic conditions to evaluate prevention interventions, medical procedures, drugs and devices.
For more information about the benefits and requirements of participating in a clinical trial or clinical research, please visit the University of Louisville Clinical Trials home page at https://louisville.edu/research/clinicaltrials
If you are interested in studies relating to a specific condition and cannot find one locally, the National Institutes of Health sponsors ClinicalTrials.gov: a searchable registry of federally and privately supported clinical trials conducted in the United States and around the world. http://www.clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/home
For sponsors, investigators and clinicians who are developing their own studies, The Office of Clinical Research Services and Support (OCRSS) is the central clinical trials office within the Offices of the Executive Vice President for Research and Innovation at the University of Louisville. For a fee, OCRSS provides administrative services, clinical support, and education for clinical trials in an effort to promote research at the University of Louisville and its affiliated institutions.
Our focus is innovation and process improvement in the management of clinical research through the use of technology and effective processes. OCRSS is a “one stop shop” for research services.
