Clinical Trials

Northwestern Memorial Hospital, along with the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, is dedicated to research and learning. We believe clinical trials play a vital role in testing new treatments to determine whether they have potential benefits for patients, and we participate in a wide range of clinical trials.

About Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are closely controlled, scientific research studies involving patients and volunteers. These trials are not considered treatments for a particular disease or condition. One goal of clinical trials is to learn more about diseases and potential treatments or cures to help patients now and in the future. Though participants may not benefit directly from being part of the trial, they will receive additional care while participating, and this care may result in being treated more quickly for any medical needs related to the condition being studied. They may also notice an improved quality of life. And, many participants have reported that being a part of something bigger than they are, helping others, is important to them as well.
