Clinical research studies are vital to the advancement of medicine and our vision to create "a Healthier Mississippi." However, we cannot do it alone. Throughout the year, UMMC recruits participants for hundreds of studies in many different therapeutic areas. The steps below provide a guide for how health systems and clinics can refer patients to trials conducted at UMMC.
Find trials that are actively enrolling on the UMMC Find a Trial site (Click here for COVID-19 related trials only) and review the trial information and inclusion/exclusion (I/E) criteria for relevant studies. The Find a Trial site has robust filter and search options including by keywords, therapeutic areas (study categories), study location, study type, age, and sex. The site also includes trials that are pending activation and those which have been closed to enrollment, but are currently active.
We have a next-business day return communication policy and will respond to you or your patient's email and/or voicemail promptly.
UMMC research teams counsel patients to follow up with their primary care provider regarding their enrollment status. Per patient request, UMMC research teams will contact the patient's primary care provider on their behalf.
