Clinical research is a critical component of neurological and psychiatric care and at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) we are world leaders.
A clinical trial is a carefully controlled study of the safety and effectiveness of a potential new medical treatment, strategy, device, or other intervention for humans. By participating in a clinical trial, which is strictly voluntary, a patient may help researchers discover a new life-saving medication or surgical procedure.
Partners HealthCare provides an online directory of all clinical trials open to new participants at BWH and other Partners HealthCare institutions. Below is a listing of the most recently added open research trials focused on neurological and psychiatric diseases and conditions. ClinicalTrials.gov also provides a database of publicly and privately supported clinical studies conducted around the world.
