Research & Clinical Trials in Neurology and Neurosurgery

Neurological Research Advances Medical Science Toward New and Improved Treatments

University Hospitals Neurological Institute is dedicated to research and the advancement of care for patients with neurological diseases. Clinical trials are research studies that involve the participation of human volunteers. The purpose of a clinical trial is to test the safety and effectiveness of new ways to diagnose, prevent and treat a medical problem, such as disease, illness or injury. Some studies are preventative, while some look at new treatments of illnesses and disorders, and others study the recovery of patients after illness.

In the Neurology Clinical Trials Department at UH, we have studies that cover a wide variety of neurological disorders.

These include:

In addition to the current studies, we conduct acute clinical trials that offer new or additional treatments for patients with a wide range of neurological diseases, including acute ischemic stroke, intracerebral hemorrhages and brain aneurysms. These patients are generally enrolled in studies while they are in the emergency room, the intensive care unit, or before or after surgery.
