Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are the principal mechanism by which new information is brought to the clinic in order to improve patient care. When a physician or other health care provider meets with a patient and their family to review treatment options and plan out a management strategy, the discussion is guided by data generated from clinical research studies. Advancing clinical research is essential to the missions of Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian. 

In 2013, WCM and NYP launched the Joint Clinical Trials Office (JCTO) to foster and advance clinical research programs. This collaboration was established in recognition of the need to provide support to investigators in these endeavors. We aim to provide a coordinated effort to facilitate high impact projects that are synergistic with other institutional goals while ensuring compliance with regulatory standards.
