Clinical research advances science and patient care. Patients are screened throughout their treatment and referred for clinical trials for which they may be eligible. Patients may also request to be screened for available clinical trials.
By volunteering to enroll in clinical trials, people help others by contributing to the advancement of medical research, gain access to new treatments and research, and play an active role in their own healthcare.
