The Department of Urology's Clinical Trials Office has been actively involved in a number of national and university-based trials that allow our patients access to cutting-edge medications, techniques, and diagnostic modalities.  Clinical trials are available for many different disease processes.  Our experienced staff can quickly determine by phone whether or not you may qualify for a certain trial.

Listed below are several of the current trials that are open for enrollment. If you are interested in finding out whether or not you qualify for participation in one of these trials, please contact Pamela Steele, RN, BSN,  CCRC at (615) 343-2120 or  pamela.steele@vumc.org
