Office of Human Research
"Our vision is to offer a research study to every patient who walks through our doors and to support and enable any physician who wants to perform research."
– Dr. Candice Sareli
Research is an integral part of the Memorial Healthcare System. The Office of Human Research at Memorial has established a comprehensive clinical research infrastructure to offer patients the opportunity to participate in leading-edge research studies, also known as clinical trials, many of which include new, innovative treatments that would otherwise not be available locally.

This comprehensive research infrastructure also attracts outstanding physicians to Memorial by offering them the ability to conduct studies in areas of interest to them. Our office provides all of the tools they need to get started, including education and training. Our office also coordinates research opportunities for physicians, which ensures patients are educated on the latest discoveries and treatment options.
With more than 26 full-time employees, our department oversees research in more than 120 active, federal and industry-funded studies across the Memorial Healthcare System in such areas as:
- Cardiovascular disease
- Cystic fibrosis
- Oncology (including breast, lung, head and neck, gastro-intestinal, gynecological, hematological, melanoma, sarcoma and glioblastoma studies)
