Clinical Trials Unit

Island Health’s Clinical Trials Unit supports researchers to expand the number of studies and treatment options we offer to patients and their families.

We conduct both investigator-initiated and industry-sponsored clinical trials, and our Principal Investigators work across a wide range of medical specialties. Our research coordinators work closely with investigators and with study participants.

Current trials focus on:

  • endocrinology (diabetes)
  • neurology (stroke care, dementia, and multiple sclerosis)
  • acute care (sepsis, shock, and ventilator-acquired pneumonia)

A list of active clinical trials at Island Health is available on
