Clinical Studies-Our Endocrinology Center participates in many research studies to increase medical knowledge and improve targeted therapies for Endocrine disorders. We work closely with Juno Research LLC performing clinical trials to patients. This improves care by allowing our patients to make individual treatment decisions that are not available to the public - especially when standard treatments have become less effective. Please note that the decision to participate in a clinical trial is complex and may depend on several factors. Speak with your doctor before enrolling to learn more about the types of studies being done and about their risks and benefits. As a patient, you always can contact Juno Research LLC to review what studies are available.
