COVID-19 Update: June 25

CCTS will continue virtual support as research restarts on campus. We are also supporting OPRS as human subject studies resume. Know what this means for your protocol.

Clinical Research Phase

Clinical research includes studies to better understand a disease in humans and relate this knowledge to findings in cell or animal models; testing and refinement of new technologies in people; testing of interventions for safety and effectiveness in those with or without disease; behavioral and observational studies; and outcomes and health services research. The goal of many clinical trials is to obtain data to support regulatory approval for an intervention.
