Our Mission

The Mission of the Research Division of the UIC Dept of Neurosurgery is to provide comprehensive clinical research services to patients and members of the medical community while also realizing the value and importance of basic science and translational research efforts. Our qualified staff consists of certified clinical research coordinators, project managers and clinical research associates. Our team is devoted to ensuring that patients are exposed to cutting edge research with the goal of providing a better quality of life. Additionally, our team is committed to assisting the growing needs of other academic and community partners in study start up, trial design, training, study monitoring and all other aspects of clinical trial start up and maintenance.

Our Principal Investigators’ (PIs) Focus is innovation and improved patient outcomes. As such, we have multidisciplinary relationships locally and abroad. Neurosurgery is the home to both federal and industry sponsored trials, as well as several flourishing investigator initiated trials which are the reason why many of our Faculty members have chosen to practice at an academic institution with a reputable research history, such as UIC.
