At UK Barnstable Brown Diabetes Center, our physicians not only provide exceptional patient care, they also conduct groundbreaking research to advance the latest medical breakthroughs that will benefit patients.
Clinical trials are important research studies that help physicians and researchers discover new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat diabetes and other metabolic diseases. At Barnstable Brown Diabetes Center, we have several clinical trials and research studies currently open. Please consider enrolling.

Understanding Clinical Trials (Research Studies)
Choosing to participate in a research study is an important personal decision. These frequently asked questions provide detailed information about clinical studies. In addition, it is often helpful to talk with a physician, family members or friends about the decision to join a study. After identifying some study options, the next step is to contact the study research staff and ask questions about specific studies.
