CNI’s Members are Engaged in Research
As a patient-centered organization, we at theColorado Neurological Institute believe inclinical research as a means to advance thestandard of care we offer our patients and toprovide the most cutting edge treatments thatare available. By engaging in clinical research,we can offer experimental medications anddevices to our patients before they are availableto the public, and provide extra attention to oursickest patients. This philosophy is embracedby our 46 member physicians, whose specialtiesspan the neurosciences. More than half areactively engaged in research projects, either inclinical trials or in physician-initiated researchprojects.Read more.
What Can CNI Do for Your Research?
CNI has been engaged in clinical research with its member physicians for 20+ years. In the last four years, the number of clinical trialshas more than doubled as more physicians have become engaged. This number is not due to an increase in members (which remainsfairly constant) but due to an increased awareness of the value of research! Read more.
