Clinical Trials

About Us

The Office of Clinical Trials coordinates research projects throughout Western Connecticut Health Network, at both hospitals, out-patient settings and clinical research trials with private practices in Fairfield County.

Our well-experienced, talented research team provides key assistance for many pharmaceutical-funded research trials. Our combined experience of full-time research staff includes more than 40 years of Phase I to Phase IV clinical trials, and all Clinical Research Coordinators are certified through the Association of Clinical Research Professionals (ACRP).

Why Choose Clinical Research at Western Connecticut Health Network?

Clinical trials enable us to offer patients access to some of the most promising therapies available. These studies evaluate new approaches to screen for, diagnose, treat and prevent diseases. Joining a clinical trial is also a way to make a valuable contribution toward the progress against disease. Therefore, our physicians encourage their patients to enroll in clinical trials.

We are careful to follow strict guidelines to protect our patients, and to offer the best treatment options. Our Institutional Review Boards conduct an in-depth review of all clinical trials at our institution to ensure the protection of our volunteer clinical trial participants. We utilize two Institutional Review Boards, one internal and one external, to provide quality research review in a timely and efficient manner.

Our research teams are experienced, knowledgeable, detail-oriented and conscientious in conducting clinical trials. We are committed to providing compassionate and outstanding care.
