Approximately 1,000 active clinical trials across multiple disciplines including oncology, neurology, orthopaedics and cardiovascular conditions are offered at NorthShore.  A growing number of trials with a personalized medicine focus have become an important part of our robust trial portfolio. Our clinical studies include those initiated by NorthShore investigators and many in collaboration with other leading medical institutions and private industry sponsors across the country.

The evaluation of clinical practices in light of new discoveries requires experience and a sophisticated infrastructure capable of supporting innovative clinical research. Our staff of dedicated physicians and scientists understands these innovations—whether they are new drugs, devices and/or procedures—and, in many cases, play active roles in their development. NorthShore’s broad service area in Chicago’s northern suburbs ensures the clinical trial enrollment of participants of all ages with diverse ethnic and racial backgrounds.

The clinical research program is fundamental to keeping NorthShore on the forefront of medical advancement. Our commitment to promoting groundbreaking discoveries and speeding their translation from the laboratory to the bedside prove each day that "Research is the best medicine.”
