Clinical Trials

Clinical trials across many clinical disciplines are conducted at Jacobi Medical Center every year. Patients admitted to our center, and who meet specific criteria for studies, may be asked to participate in a research study. If you have questions about one of the specific studies listed, please contact the lead coordinator for that trial to learn more.
