Clinical Research

UMC hosts a thriving scientific community that collaborates with numerous National Institute of Health (NIH) programs and other non-profit research organizations on clinical research to answer questions about new treatments or existing therapies. Our clinical research is conducted in conjunction with our affiliate academic institutions.

UMC’s Department of Clinical research provides resources, credentialing and oversight to affiliated educational institutions wishing to conduct research at University Medical Center New Orleans.

We support research across the biomedical spectrum, from core lab-based science and translational research to clinical trials in all major disease areas. We further assist in the development of Quality and Performance Improvement initiatives, driven through and by staff and trainees, thus providing a direct correlation between the level of improved health services and desired outcomes in a meaningful way.
