About UCSF Clinical Trials

Welcome to the University of California, San Francisco!

Our doctors and researchers are looking for new ways to prevent and treat diseases. To do this, our scientists use a type of research called clinical trials.

A clinical trial is used to see if a treatment works and is safe for people.

As a world class research center, UCSF has hundreds of clinical trials. Many are done at the UCSF Medical Center, one of the best hospitals in the country.

This site gives you information about the trials going on at UCSF. This site also gives you a way to get in touch with the teams running trials that are open to new people.

Patient safety is the number one priority for clinical trials at UCSF. Our researchers follow strict rules from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). You may want to check out more information about clinical trials from the NIH to see if these studies are right for you or a loved one.

This site includes data from UCSF, (details), and other sources. If you have questions or feedback about the administration of this site or reusing the data, email us. Do not email personal health information.
