Industry Sponsored Clinical Trials

Rush University researchers often oversee trials of drugs or medical devices that have been developed by private pharmaceutical firms or other businesses, as those firms seek to fulfill the regulations of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in bringing their products to market. 

These collaborations often begin when a firm approaches you directly, or the University may make the introduction. Our Clinical Research Administration, a division of the Office of Research Affairs (ORA), can help you identify potential industry sponsors, facilitate connections and set up a research study based on an industry sponsored agreement.
