Downtown Chicago Clinical Trials and Research

Clinical trials, and the patients who volunteer to participate in them, help shape the future of medicine. Taking part in a clinical trial is a personal decision—and one that you should carefully consider.

Feinberg School of Medicine Clinical Trials

The partnership between Northwestern Medicine and the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine helps offer patients access to a wide variety of clinical trials. Feinberg stands out as one of the nation's top research-intensive medical schools, attracting talented faculty, staff, and students through its cutting-edge research initiatives, superb clinical affiliates, global outlook and innovative curriculum. At Feinberg, hundreds of clinical trials are going on daily.

Those interested in volunteering for a study are encouraged to visit the school's Clinical Trial Listings for more information about clinical trials and how to volunteer. Visitors can search for trials by department, or by disease or condition.

Cancer Clinical Trials at Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University

The Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center is typically involved in more than 300 clinical trials at a given time, covering a broad range of subjects. Some clinical trials study the safety and effectiveness of a drug, a medical device, or a new approach to surgery. Others test new ways to prevent disease, diagnose cancer, improve quality of life, or help people with cancer manage difficult psychological and social issues.

If you have been diagnosed with cancer, feel that you are at high risk of being diagnosed with cancer, or if you are a survivor, ask your doctor if a clinical trial is right for you--now or possibly in the future.
