Our researchers are committed to facilitating the translation of research from the laboratory, to the patient’s bedside, to the community, in order to make a difference in the lives of our patients. And these discoveries not only improve care for people here at Fletcher Allen, but across the country and around the world.

Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are research studies involving patients who volunteer to participate in the investigation of new therapies and medications. Clinical trials can offer patients immediate access to treatments not available anywhere else.

At Vermont’s academic medical center, there are more than 1,000 currently active clinical trials across many fields of medicine. Please contact us or visit the Office of Clinical Trials Research if you would like to find out more about open trials.
