New Clinical Research Website Will Provide More Opportunities for East Texans
TYLER (November 28, 2022) – The University of Texas at Tyler (UT Tyler) is releasing a new clinical research website, featuring information for those who want to learn more about clinical trials and opportunities to participate. There are a variety of benefits to engaging in clinical trials, such as contributing to medical breakthroughs or gaining access to the newest research treatments. Clinical trials are free to the participant, making them a great opportunity for people to receive medical services with no out-of-pocket costs.
“We are very excited to release the newly renovated clinical research website,” says Dr. Alan Cook, Medical Director for the Center for Clinical Research. “Conducting clinical research is a means to offer state-of-the-art treatment for an array of diseases and conditions that are not yet on the market. We want our neighbors and friends across Northeast Texas to know that clinical research is safe and available to them.” To view the website, visit: https://clinicalresearch.uttyler.edu/clinical-trials/
