Participating in a Clinical Trial

Clinical trials are essential to advancing medical breakthroughs. Patients who volunteer for a study may help researchers gain new insights into a disease or evaluate the success of a new treatment. Participants also may have access to treatments that are not available to the general population.

If you have questions about participating in a study or would like to learn more, please visit the Washington University Physicians website:

All clinical activities are overseen by the Institutional Review Board (IRB) to comply with ethical standards as well as government and institutional regulations.
