Dermatology Research

Outpatient clinical research trials are used to test and evaluate investigational drugs, treatments, and devices. A new investigational drug, treatment, or device must be shown to be both safe and effective before it can be considered for approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Testing in humans is permitted only if an individual volunteers for participation and understands the possible risks, side effects, and benefits of a study. Clinical research allows you to gain access to new or current treatments and receive expert medical care with drugs that are not yet released to market. Volunteering participants are protected by the International Review Board (IRB) that oversees the volunteer advocate, the physician, and staff that are conducting the trial. Clinical volunteers are often paid a stipend for their time and travel.
