Clinical Trials

Our Clinical Trials Lead to Treatment Innovations

A clinical trial is a clinical research study where participants receive specific interventions—such as a drug or other therapy, a new screening test, a behavior change or procedure—under close medical monitoring and according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators (often medical doctors). A clinical study involves research that is intended to add to medical knowledge related to the treatment, diagnosis and prevention of diseases or conditions. Without clinical trials, we would not be able to move medicine forward.

Clinical Trials at St. Dominic Hospital

St. Dominic-Jackson Memorial Hospital takes pride in its support of clinical research performed at or in collaboration with St. Dominic Hospital and St. Dominic Medical Associates.


The St. Dominic-Jackson Memorial Hospital Institutional Review Board (IRB) is charged by the federal government with protecting human subjects involved in research. The IRB performs prospective and continuing review of protocols, the informed consent process, and the procedures used to enroll subjects in order to facilitate human subject research that is compliant with the Belmont Report and with applicable federal, state, local and institutional requirements.

St. Dominic’s Office of Research is responsible for managing and overseeing the conduct of the Clinical Research Program. This oversight is accomplished through the OOR’s three primary functions: IRB Administration, Clinical Trial Contracting and Compliance Monitoring.
