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 medicine
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 informatics
and professor of internal medicine
, has developed a cell phone application that helps patients access information about available clinical trials.
