Become a Volunteer for Research!

At Borland Groover we value our patients and diligently participate in clinical trials in an effort to bring new options in the treatment of gastrointestinal disease and conditions.

Our commitment to providing excellent health care also involves conducting clinical research with the purpose of helping our patients live longer, healthier lives.

People like you make these clinical trials possible. Your participation is not only important to our research, but also provides the clinical data needed for medical advances to become available to the public. Clinical trials look at new ways to prevent, detect or treat gastrointestinal diseases or conditions, while also providing valuable information about health and disease progress.

Our clinic has been active in both internal and external funded research programs since 1995 with the mission of providing a basis of understanding and treating medical illnesses. Several of our principal investigators came to Borland Groover after having vibrant academic careers in basic and clinical research. Many of our investigators are also lead authors of cutting-edge manuscripts in scientific journals.

We have a long history with many leading pharmacology, private research and development centers worldwide. We are actively involved in pharmacologic outcome clinical trials especially with new agents in Phase I through Phase III. Currently, we are able to offer patients access to new drugs in clinical trials years before they become commercially available.

Our research group, Encore Borland Groover Clinical Research (EBGCR), is strengthened by Borland Groover’s ability to provide radiologic, endoscopic and infusion services on-site at our facility. We have experience in other areas of health care, including anesthesia, women’s health, allergy, device, radiology, nutrition and immunology. Many of our research projects have been presented nationally and internationally such as at the American College of Gastroenterology and at Digestive Disease Week.

Be sure to read the publications written by our physicians on advancements and new findings in the area of gastrointestinal research.

Because of the willingness of thousands of volunteers like you, medical advances have been made through clinical research and millions of people have seen improvement in their health. As clinical research opens new doors to finding ways to diagnose, prevent, treat or cure diseases and disabilities, volunteer participation is essential in helping us continue to find those answers.
