Clinical Research Volunteers . .
to bring tomorrow's solutions to today's medical challenges.
Becoming a Volunteer
North Alabama Neuroscience Research,
based in the Clinic for Neurology, in Huntsville, is
an active partner with over twenty pharmaceutical companies.
Together, through a variety of collaborative research
studies, we are continuously searching for a better
understanding of neurological diseases that affect patients.
A clinical study is carefully
designed to test the effects of a medication, medical
treatment or device on a group of volunteers. Clinical
studies are an important step in making new medications
available. They measure the drug's ability to treat
a condition, its safety and its possible side effects.
How can I get Involved?
People with the condition being
studied can volunteer to participate in a study. Each
study has specific requirements such as age, sex, or
medical condition for participants. The physician conducting
the study will review each volunteer's medical history
and the study requirements to determine who can participate.
Known risks, and benefits are explained to volunteers
during the informed consent process. This process is
designed to give volunteers the information that they
need to decide about participating in a clinical study.

drug study or to learn more about being in a clinical
