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. Please explore the web page for information about studies currently being conducted, as well as studies for which we are actively recruiting. You can find studies for specific diseases by clicking on the type of disease in the list below. If you have any questions or think you may qualify for a study, please see our research contacts.
We conduct clinical trials that offer new or additional treatments for patients with a wide range of neurological diseases. Depending on the disease, these patients can be enrolled in studies while they are in the emergency room, the intensive care unit, before or after surgery, or in an outpatient office setting.
