Clinical trials are studies of new treatment and diagnostic approaches in patients. Every advance that has been achieved in medicine and has improved the lives of patients has come about as the result of clinical trials.
Clinical trials are conducted by NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital physicians through their academic positions at one of the hospital's affiliated medical colleges: Weill Cornell Medical College or Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. The medical research takes place through these colleges, although staff members running these studies may use NewYork-Presbyterian facilities and equipment.
There are a number of ways you can learn about clinical trials for your particular disease or disorder. They include:
(1) Clinical Trials at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons: Visit Columbia's Clinical Trials Office.
(2) Clinical Trials at Weill Cornell Medical College: Visit Weill Cornell's Joint Clinical Trials Office.
(3) Medivizor: This service will find trials for you, explain them in plain English and allow you to apply to them directly. All you need to do is sign up and create a profile that Medivizor then uses to find matching clinical trials. Also, you'll be notified when new relevant trials become available.
