Search Clinical Trials

Our researchers are currently in need of adult and pediatric study participants help us pursue better treatments and cures. Participants may receive medical evaluations and procedures, study medication, disease-related education and possible financial compensation for time, travel and participation.

Learn about Clinical Research

Chances are that you or someone you know may be alive today thanks to people who have participated in clinical research. Knowing all you can about clinical trials can help you feel better when deciding whether or not to take part in one.

Pediatric Research

The National Jewish Health Department of Pediatrics actively participates in both National Institutes of Health (NIH) and industry-sponsored clinical research. Our goal is to improve medical care for children by helping design, implement and interpret clinical studies safely and accurately.

Our Discoveries

Clinical research at National Jewish Health has led to many important scientific discoveries, including:
  • The first effective drug therapy for tuberculosis
  • Treatments for allergies and asthma
  • A better understanding of how our bodies fight viruses, bacteria and cancer

 

What We Study and Where

National Jewish Health is located in Denver, Colorado. Most of our clinical research is conducted at our Denver location, but we also participate in medical research studies that are offered at other national centers.

Generally, we study allergy, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), cystic fibrosis, eczema, food allergies, heart, idiopathic lung disease (ILD), lung cancer, rheumatoid arthritis and sleep conditions.

Our research program started in 1919 and includes groundbreaking discoveries for tuberculosis, asthma, allergies and pulmonary fibrosis. Integrating our research and clinical efforts gives our patients access to the latest medical advances.

Types of Research Study

Clinical trials and observation studies are important to help new medications, treatments and devices become approved for public use.

Clinical trails test the safety and effectiveness of new drugs, devices, procedures and behaviors. They also can compare new treatments to existing new ones of look at several existing treatments to determine which is more effective.

Observational research studies look at study participants and their outcomes, often without providing specific treatments to the research group.
