Clinical Research Trials

At Asheville Neurology, we recognize the importance of conducting clinical research for our patients and for our community.

We have recently partnered with Elligo in order to expand access to the most current, leading-edge treatment options available through clinical trials.

Clinical trials are the first step in bringing new treatment options to people around the world. Individuals like you, who participate in clinical trials, make it possible to advance medicine. Effective and safe new treatments and cures can only become realities if people take the initiative to participate in a clinical research study. When a trial is complete, researchers better understand how a medication benefits a specific medical condition.

Our neurologists conduct these trials as a way to provide access to the most current treatment options. Thanks to the voluntary participation of many patients, we have successfully conducted more than 100 clinical trials.

Our research capabilities continue to grow in order to facilitate the best opportunities and treatment options for our patients. Our site Manager, Ben, is a Clinical Research Coordinator with many years of experience conducting clinical trials of all kinds, including many with neurological indications. Ashley, another of our on-site Clinical Research Coordinators, has worked in clinical research for over 8 years. The final member of our dedicated research team is Miranda, who has many years of experience working in the medical field.
