Clinical Research Volunteers . . .

Helping to bring tomorrow's solutions to today's medical challenges.

Becoming a Volunteer

North Alabama Neuroscience Research, based in the Clinic for Neurology, in Huntsville, is an active partner with over twenty pharmaceutical companies. Together, through a variety of collaborative research studies, we are continuously searching for a better understanding of neurological diseases that affect patients.

A clinical study is carefully designed to test the effects of a medication, medical treatment or device on a group of volunteers. Clinical studies are an important step in making new medications available. They measure the drug's ability to treat a condition, its safety and its possible side effects.

How can I get Involved?

People with the condition being studied can volunteer to participate in a study. Each study has specific requirements such as age, sex, or medical condition for participants. The physician conducting the study will review each volunteer's medical history and the study requirements to determine who can participate. Known risks, and benefits are explained to volunteers during the informed consent process. This process is designed to give volunteers the information that they need to decide about participating in a clinical study.
