Participating in research
HealthPartners Institute conducts research that covers the lifespan, from newborn through advanced age. Research at the Institute benefits the community in many ways, such as determining the safety of vaccines and best care practices for chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease.
There are benefits to participating:
- Help advance health and healthcare locally and nationally. Participants contribute to discoveries that lead to better ways to treat medical conditions and better involvement of patients in their own care.
- Participants receive close monitoring while taking part in a clinical trial, the results of which may benefit future patients. Our researchers work with research partners such as the University of Minnesota, the Minnesota Department of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Cancer Research Network.
Our research is supported by funding from government sources such as National Institutes of Health and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, private foundations such as the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, pharmaceutical and medical device companies and individuals.
