Clinical Trials

As a Center of Research Translation, the Center for Musculoskeletal Research and URMC Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation are committed to increasing the number of experimental treatments and procedures accessible to patients from the Rochester, NY region. We also conduct clinical trials in multi-site efforts that are national in scope.

URMC is one of the first institutions nationwide with funding from the National Institutes of Health to establish the University of Rochester Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI). The CTSI is to lead the emerging field of clinical and translational research to more quickly advance treatments to patients. We are also developing educational programs to train clinicians and biomedical scientists in the conduct of translational research and clinical trials.
