Did you know that Emory Healthcare is involved in more than 1,000 clinical trials?

As the leading academic medical center in Georgia, discovering the treatments of tomorrow is in our DNA.

Groundbreaking scientific advances have been made possible because of volunteer participation in clinical trials and research. An example of a clinical trial would be testing a new drug aimed at reducing high blood pressure by working with groups of individuals who suffer from high blood pressure. The end result of the trial is to determine if the drug is effective.

Trials are developed by Emory investigators, pharmaceutical companies, the National Institutes of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other federal agencies. Before launching any clinical trial at Emory Healthcare, it undergoes rigorous review by the Emory University Institutional Review Board to adequately protect the rights, safety and welfare of our volunteer participants.
