The University at Buffalo aims to recruit more participants in
its clinical trials by working with a group of patients led by Laurene
M. Tumiel Berhalter, PhD
, associate professor of family
and director of community translational research.
According to SUNY Distinguished Professor Timothy
F. Murphy, MD
, senior associate dean for clinical and
translational research, people in the community should be involved
in all phases of clinical research. Additionally, Peter
L. Elkin, MD
, professor and chair of biomedical
and professor of internal
, has developed a cell phone application that helps
patients access information about available clinical trials.
