Clinical research studies are a means to understand diseases and to develop new treatments based on direct study and observation of people.
When patients and healthy volunteers enroll in a clinical study, they become partners with the members of the research team who are experts in the disease and who are searching for better ways to understand and treat disease. The participants in a clinical study are essential for helping others with the same or similar diseases, both today and in future generations.
Numerous clinical trials are ongoing and taking place within UT Physicians clinics and UTHealth teaching hospitals.
