Find a Clinical Trial
At the OHSU Brain Institute, we have many clinical trials (research studies of new treatments in humans). This means you have access to more treatments for brain and nervous system conditions than anywhere else in Oregon.
The OHSU Brain Institute is one of the top three institutions in the nation for neuroscience research funded by the U.S. National Institutes of Health. At Oregon's only academic medical center, the OHSU Brain Institute is doing the most complex and advanced neuroscience research. Our innovative research brings the best healthcare and community information to all Oregonians.
Clinical trials are the final step in a long process of clinical research. They allow researchers and doctors to apply what they've learned in the laboratory to human treatments.
Clinical trials allow scientists to test the true value of their research to diagnose, treat or prevent diseases and disabilities. Each clinical trial is a chance to try a promising new invention or treatment in humans for the first time.
