The Ramos Center is committed to contributing to the future of medicine. Research studies provide patients and their families an opportunity to take part in clinical research trials for a wide variety of medical conditions. Participants undergo careful evaluation by study physicians and are closely followed by the medical staff. There is never a charge to the participant as the cost of medical research is paid for by the pharmaceutical company that sponsors the research program. No medical insurance is necessary to participate. Medical research is an important part of finding new treatments for medical conditions. Research studies are a good way to be a part of the latest advances in medicine.
