About Research at JFK Medical Center

JFK Medical Center is a participant in CISRP an independent non-profit organization founded for the purpose of educating the public, patients, medical/research communities, media and policy makers in order to promote greater understanding and awareness of clinical research participation and the role it plays in public health.

At some point in our lives, there is great probability that you, or a loved one, will be affected by an acute or chronic illness. Clinical studies – the gold standard for testing promising new strategies for preventing, diagnosing and treating such illnesses – are thoughtfully designed and administered by JFK's research team in an effort to answer specific medical questions. You no longer need to leave your community to find clinical studies appropriate for you.

JFK is also affiliated with the WESTERN IRB, who is registered with the federal government and provides review and approval of clinical studies performed at JFK. For more information, visit WCG IRB.
