Research & Academics

We welcome participation by interested individuals in our studies or those who would like to make contributions to support our research efforts.

Clinical trials at Carilion Clinic can be either interventional or observational. Subjects in interventional studies will receive one treatment or another and the outcome will be measured. Subjects in observational studies are simply observed and their outcomes are measured.

Currently our Interventional Pulmonologists are in collaboration with Virginia Tech University and the Maryland Virginia Tech School of Veterinary Medicine. The primary focus of their research is to seek and develop new approaches to diagnose, treat, and enhance the quality of life of Cancer patients.
