At the Forefront of Science and Medicine

At Atrium Health, research plays an integral role in realizing our core mission – to improve health, elevate hope and advance healing – for all. Our investigators participate in and lead Phase I to IV research, and our organization is frequently sought after as a core research site for clinical trials.

We’ve also established research collaborations with many leading academic centers across the United States and beyond, engaging in multi-center research on a national and global scale. Our investigators have published their research in leading journals, presented their findings at major symposiums and are called upon as subject matter experts in medicine. They’re also active members of disease-focused research consortia, as well as private, state and federally funded research initiatives.

Our research team participates in:

  • Academic research center trials
  • Disease-focused consortia
  • Investigator-initiated organization-sponsored trials involving peer institutions
  • Multi-site federally funded research, including studies supported by the National Institutes of Health and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
  • Trials sponsored by biopharmaceutical and medical device companies

Atrium Health is not only in demand as a clinical trial site; we’ve been recognized for the innovative approaches our clinicians and research teams use. Many projects begin with an idea from a patient, clinician or research teammate and are piloted on a small scale before being implemented across our organization. From advancing innovative medical devices and software solutions to developing novel treatments and therapies that address the mind-body aspects of disease, our research team is helping to improve care for our patients and others across the world.
