Aspirus Research Institute

Advancing health care through clinical research.

The Aspirus Research Institute offers patients access to the most state-of-the-art treatment options involving medications, medical devices and other biotechnology options. Current efforts are focused on cardiovascular research, as heart disease is the number one cause of death in the U.S.

A clinical trial paves the way for new treatments to become available to all patients. Patients potentially benefit from clinical trials through opportunities to receive the most advanced care available and they can take pride in the fact that they are helping to advance medical knowledge through their participation.

All clinical research trials at the Aspirus Research Institute are led by one of our dedicated physician investigators who are the leaders in their field. These study physicians work closely with a patient’s other health care providers to maximize a research participant’s outcomes. All trials are also approved and monitored by the Aspirus Wausau Hospital Institutional Review Board, which ensure participant’s rights and safety is protected.

Participating in a Clinical Trial

At the Aspirus Research Institute, your physician may recommend that you consider participation in a clinical trial only when appropriate based on you current medical condition or medical history.

All clinical trial opportunities are completely voluntary and a decision to participate in any research study is an important and personal one. Our experienced research Investigators and Coordinators are available to you and your family and friends to provide accurate information about a clinical trial and to ensure that all questions and concerns are addressed prior to participation. This process is called Informed Consent.

While enrolled in a clinical trial, the Principal Investigator as well as dedicated Research Coordinators will offer you an extra layer of care and oversight of your medical condition in addition to the standard of care you receive. We strive to make clinical trial participation a rewarding opportunity for all of our participants. Our entire research staff serves as a partner and advocate for you throughout and often following your research participation.
