Participating in Clinical Trial Research
Clinical trial research is essential in helping physicians and other researchers to find a better way to prevent, diagnose, or treat a disease. The research team at the CARMA Center leverages the outstanding interdisciplinary research environment at the University of Utah to create a multifaceted and comprehensive program to better understand and manage cardiac arrhythmias.
Patients who are interested in participating in the CARMA Center’s clinical research may benefit by gaining access to new research treatments before they are widely available. We see our patient volunteers as partners, helping us advance the understanding and treatment of Atrial Fibrillation. If you are interested in learning more about opportunities to participate, please contact one of our research coordinators.
