Research & Clinical Trials

As a distinguished health system and academic medical center, Loyola contributes to significant medical research with more than 120 clinical research studies each year.

Volunteer participants are a necessary and important part of our commitment to healthcare research. When you participate in clinical research, you assist with our efforts to make health care better. In addition, you have access to investigational drugs and procedures before they are otherwise available. Working together, we can answer questions that will lead to medical breakthroughs and better health for the future.
