Research and Clinical Trials

Team Up with Our Researchers to Propel Medicine Forward

Read about COVID-19 related updates from the VCU Office of the Vice President for Research and Innovation

We're accelerating the development of new and promising discoveries through research. Not only do clinical trials give you access to advanced medical treatments before they are widely available, but you’re also helping us to reinvent the meaning and the means of health care.

Clinical research is about possibilities. We're doing our part to make those possibilities a reality. We're committed to providing you with the very best treatment opportunities. Some of those opportunities are only available through clinical trials. Our research programs are focused on you, providing you with access to diagnostic and treatment options not yet widely available. In many cases, our clinical trials are the only way to gain access to some leading-edge diagnostic, preventive and critical care treatments and technologies that offer fuller, longer and better lives. Visit the VCU C. Kenneth and Dianne Wright Center for Clinical and Translational Research to learn more.

How We're Making a Difference

We're a community that is always on, up all night, in the trenches, and inventing the latest and greatest every day. Here's what we're doing at some of our research centers and institutes:

Our providers talk about their research and what it means to our patients.

Basic research is only valuable if it leads to improving lives in the community. Hear Dr. Gerard Moeller, Director and Principal Investigator, C. Kenneth and Dianne Wright Center for Clinical and Translational Research and division chair for addiction psychiatry talk about the focus of his research in addiction.

For Dr. Arun Sanyal, Gastroenterology, the whole mission of academic institutions is to become a breeding ground for new science. Hear Dr. Sanyal speak about how participating in studies is essential to the continuation of new science and innovation.

Dr. Alpha A. Fowler III, Pulmonary Disease and Critical Care Medicine, talks about how research tweaked his imagination and the magic of high dose vitamin C in treating sepsis.

Dr. Jonathan Isaacs, Orthopaedic Surgery, talks about research as the combination of basic science, teaching and caring for patients.

The purpose of clinical research is to answer the question: can we do better? Hear Dr. Henry Rozycki, Vice Chair of Research at Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU, talk about what research means to him.
