Research

At Glover Medical we conduct clinical research studies for a variety of different conditions.

What is a clinical research study? A clinical research study is designed to test the effects and/or safety of an investigational medication, medical treatment or device on a group of volunteers. Clinical research studies are an important step in making new medications available for future use.

Should I volunteer? Volunteering to participate in a clinical research study is one of the best ways you can contribute to the understanding of diseases that affect people and the development of new therapies. Volunteers are important to the clinical research phase of the drug approval process. As a volunteer, you are the most critical link in a long chain of research and testing in the development of new medications for the future treatment of a broad range of health problems.

Our goal at Glover Medical is to provide a positive experience for the many patients that volunteer to participate. Please view our studies below to see if you’d be a good fit, then give us a call at 604-530-3233 x8, or email us at  to discuss your options with our experienced staff.
