Bluhm Cardiovascular Institute - Clinical Trials Unit (CTU) of Northwestern
As an academic medical center, we are dedicated to advancing clinical care of cardiovascular patients through research. We are able to accomplish this by conducting clinical trials that offer a wide range of cardiovascular treatments.
About the Center
The Bluhm Cardiovascular Institute's (BCVI) Clinical Trials Unit (CTU) of Northwestern was established in 2005 to provide the infrastructure necessary to assist investigators in performing high quality cardiovascular clinical research. Our investigators are also practicing physicians who see the results firsthand of these innovative treatments for their patients.
The CTU is committed to providing a full range of research services to facilitate the development, implementation, and successful completion of clinical trials. The CTU ensures compliance with federal, state, and institutional regulations, policies, and procedures to protect the interests of patients and the university. We believe this dedicated endeavor will enhance Northwestern's status and become an internationally recognized clinical research center, known for its excellence in clinical research management by the pharmaceutical industry, the National Institutes of Health, and other academic medical centers.
