Types of Clinical Trials

Some of our research studies are sponsored by pharmaceutical companies and allow us access to therapies not otherwise available to our patients. We also offer "home brew" studies, or investigator initiated research studies that are based on our own unique ideas. Some are quite simple and others expand upon conventional wisdom. Home brew studies include observational studies, which look at data gathered over time, as well as unique therapeutic trials available as a result of our association with the National Institutes of Health and George Mason University. Types of studies include:

  • NIH Sponsored Studies
  • Registries
  • Industry Studies
  • Biobanking
