Clinical Trials and Research
What is a clinical trial?
A clinical trial is a medical research study in humans that looks for ways to treat a particular condition.
What clinical trials is the USC Neurology Department conducting?
Currently, we are conducting inpatient and outpatient stroke clinical trials, movement disorder clinical trials, and multiple clinical trials involving various other neurological disorders as well.
