Participate in Research

Research is about the gathering of information, about making decisions based on the knowledge of the past and the needs of the future. An important part of research is the clinical trial. Clinical trials are research studies that test how well new medical approaches work with people. Each study answers scientific questions and tries to find better ways to prevent, screen for, diagnose or treat a disease. Clinical trials may also compare a new treatment to a treatment that is already available.

The UAMS Psychiatric Research Institute not only treats patients, it is looking for new methods of treatment. In an effort to find new, effective means of treating mental illnesses of all forms, the staff of the Psychiatric Research Institute is conducting a number of clinical trials designed to help them better understand and improve the lifestyles of those people in need of assistance.
