Get in Touch About Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are critical for helping researchers develop new and better treatment options. We need volunteers of all ages and backgrounds, as each clinical trial or research study has different enrollment criteria and standards.

If you would like to be kept informed about our clinical trials, please create a short profile by filling out this form. Submitting this form will allow us to provide you with updates on clinical trials that may be of interest to you.

How are Volunteers Protected?

U.S. federal agencies, including the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH), oversee much of the medical research in the country.

Every clinical trial in the United States must be approved and monitored by an Institutional Review Board (IRB) - a committee of physicians, statisticians, researchers, community advocates - to make sure that the potential risks to trial participants are minimized and that the probable benefits of the trial outweigh those risks. All institutions that conduct or support biomedical research financed by federal funds and involving people must be reviewed by an IRB.

Physicians and medical personnel involved in clinical trials are bound by ethical and legal codes that govern standard medical practices. In addition, most clinical research is regulated by the federal government to further protect the health and safety of the participants. Every trial must follow a carefully controlled protocol, or study plan that details what researchers will do during the trial. As a clinical trial progresses, researchers report the results of the trial to colleagues, medical publications, and various government agencies.

Partnership Inquiry

The Atlantic Center for Research administration team serves as the central point of contact for all research conducted at Atlantic Health System. This includes new and established clinical trial sponsors and investigators who are affiliated with our hospitals, as well as for attending physicians interested in conducting clinical trials and physicians seeking to refer patients to research studies.

If you are interested in contacting us regarding a partnership opportunity, please contact our Administrative Director and Grants via email >
