We are leading clinical trials aimed at advancing the understanding and treatment of cardiac illness and its root causes. It's one of the many ways we're tailoring medicine to the unique characteristics of each patient.
The Cambridge Cardiac Care Centre Research team is comprised of accomplished and innovative professionals dedicated to advancing health care through ongoing research and development with a sound reputation for excellence. Our staff are catalysts for discovery and regularly conduct landmark clinical trials that have contributed to the modern landscape of cardiovascular medicine.
Research is the careful, diligent search aimed at learning new information. It can help us to learn how we can improve the quality of patient care. Before new medications can be approved, they must go through a series of rigorous tests called clinical research trials or studies.
Cambridge Cardiac Care Centre research studies are carried out by our team of dedicated professionals including the physicians and the study coordinators but most importantly, the patients.
You may help in the development of new treatments or may help to broaden the indication for currently available treatments. You may also help to improve the standard of care for patients in the future.
Research studies conducted at Cambridge Cardiac Care Centre have all been approved by an independent ethics committee, FDA and Health Canada to insure that they are appropriate for the patient population and to ensure that the information provided to the patient accurately reflects the conduct of the study.
