Clinical and Translational Research

For more than 130 years, Saint Luke’s has been dedicated to providing the highest quality, most advanced care possible.

Each year Saint Luke’s researchers participate in hundreds of active studies conducted within myriad disciplines. They enroll thousands of patients. They secure sponsorships and funding from the National Institutes of Health, the American Heart Association, the National Cancer Institute, Saint Luke’s Foundation, and pharmaceutical and medical device companies.

And each year, they are on the frontlines of developing essential, life-changing innovations—particularly in cardiovascular disease and neurology.

Combined, these forces put Saint Luke’s Health System among the top health care research facilities in the Midwest in terms of the number and scope of studies. No wonder so many of the nation’s leading clinicians choose to join Saint Luke’s. Through their efforts, we continually strive to meet our singular goal: improve patient outcomes.
