Clinical Trials

Dr. Grant Comer in the KCRC

Clinical care at Kellogg is backed by a strong vision research program aimed at discovering cures and new treatments for eye disease. Our expanded Clinical Research Center offers patients the opportunity to participate in the evaluation of promising new treatments for eye disease.

A clinical trial is a research program conducted with patients to evaluate a new medical treatment, drug, or device. The purpose of clinical trials is to find new and improved methods of treating, preventing, screening for, and diagnosing different diseases while under the supervision of a physician and other research professionals. 

At the Kellogg Eye Center, clinical trails are conducted at the Kellogg Clinical Research Center (KCRC), a 5,000 square foot research unit located on the 5th floor of the Kellogg Tower at the Kellogg Eye Center in Ann Arbor. The KCRC provides infrastructure, services for investigators who conduct research, and resources to support patient-oriented research studies in the areas of retina, cornea, glaucoma, pediatrics, thyroid eye disease, ocular oncology, oculoplastics, and telemedicine.
