Research and Clinical Trials

ResearchCone Health offers nationally accredited research and clinical trials that are focused on allowing our medical community to be involved in finding breakthroughs in treatment options.

Research and clinical trials test new ways to prevent, detect, diagnose or treat diseases. The treatments that patients receive today are based on the results of past clinical trials.

Research includes tests and studies that happen across Cone Health. Clinical trials rely on the input of human volunteers to answer questions about treatments for diseases and conditions.

According to US regulatory standards and FDA/OHRP guidelines, our studies are monitored by an independent committee of physicians, statisticians, community advocates and others whose job is to ensure that the study is ethical and the rights of patients are protected.
