Clinical Trials and Clinical Research
As an academic health sciences centre, we are committed to providing learning and research opportunities for students, teachers, healthcare professionals, and researchers. Clinical Trials and Clinical Research are key components in anchoring our role as a leading academic health sciences centre in Northern Ontario.
What are Clinical Research Projects and what are Clinical Trials?
According to the Ontario Hospital Association :
- A Clinical Research Project is one that requires informed consent.
- A Clinical Trial is “a prospective biomedical or behavioural research study of human subjects that is designed to answer specific questions about biomedical or behavioural interventions (vaccines, drugs, treatments, devices, or new ways of using known drugs, treatments, or devices). Clinical trials are used to determine whether new biomedical or behavioural interventions are safe, efficacious, and effective. They include behavioural human subjects’ research involving an intervention to modify behaviour.”
HSNRI supports several clinical research projects and clinical trials. Please see the list of active clinical trials below.
