Did you know that Emory Healthcare is currently involved in more than 1,000 clinical trials? As the leading academic medical center in the state of Georgia, discovering the treatments of tomorrow is in our DNA. Emory Healthcare is proud to sponsor clinical trials and offer the opportunity for patients to participate in them.

Groundbreaking scientific advances have been made possible today 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 a group of individuals who currently suffer from high blood pressure. The end result of the trial is to determine if the drug is effective. For more information on clinical trials, check our answers to frequently asked questions.

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.
