JWM Neurology Research Department
JWM Neurology conducts clinical research studies. You may qualify to participate in clinical research at our practice if you have certain neurological diseases. Be sure to ask your JWM neurologist regarding you or your family member’s particular situation at your next appointment.
JWM Neurology’s research department has been in operation since 2005 and is directed by Craig Herrman, MD. We also have a dedicated Research Manager and three specially trained clinical study coordinators who assist our physicians with the recruitment of and conducting the clinical trials. Our research department has participated in clinical trials for a vast array of neurologic diagnoses including but not limited to:
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Chronic Pain
- Restless Leg Syndrome
We have worked together with many different pharmaceutical companies including Biogen, Teva, Novartis, UCB, Sanofi and Genzyme.
The goal of the JWM research department is to give our patients other options to the current FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approved medications. This allows physicians, staff and patients to be on the cutting edge of neurology in all fields. We find that our patients enjoy participating in research for a few reasons:
- Some want to be the first to get new medication to treat a difficult condition.
- Some want to help a disease field as a whole or help to advance or improve an already approved drug.
- Others like the experience and find it to be rewarding.
