UK Chandler Medical Center is particularly strong in laboratory and clinical research. Clinical Research Trials are the vehicle for getting new medications and treatments to market for millions of people.  Clinical trials are carefully designed to test a medical treatment in people under the supervision of a qualified medical investigator and with the approval of an ethics board called the Institutional Review Board (IRB).  The IRB committee reviews all studies to make sure your rights as a research volunteer are fully protected. Clinical trials are being conducted in a number of therapeutic areas at the University of Kentucky Medical Center.  Search the clinical trials listings to explore open trials and active clinical research groups.
