Run a Clinical Trial

If you are a clinician, scientist or sponsor interested in collaborating with Wesley Medical Research to run a clinical trial for your chosen area of research, please email clinicaltrials@wesleyresearch.com.au to express your interest and our clinical trials team will get in touch with you.

Join a clinical trial

Both healthy participants and those diagnosed with a disease or condition are needed to help find new ways to diagnose, prevent, treat or cure illness. If more people are involved in clinical trials, it may reduce the time it takes to make new interventions widely available. If you would like to express your interest in participating in a clinical trial in Tourette Syndrome, Multiple Sclerosis, Cardiac disease, Coeliac disease or Rare diseases, please email clinicaltrials@wesleyresearch.com.au and our clinical trials team will get in touch with you
