The Rogosin Institute has been involved in basic and clinical research trials for over 50 years.  These efforts support the mission of Rogosin to bring the results of research to patients as quickly as possible and to provide the best care possible.  Basic research involves experiments and studies that occur in a laboratory setting.  Clinical research trials involves the participation of human volunteers to help answer questions about new treatments or new ways of using known treatments (drugs and/or procedures) for diseases.

Investigator Training
All investigators and clinical research staff at Rogosin complete the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI Program) training on the Protection of Human Research Subjects.

Institutional Review Boards
Every clinical trial in the U.S must be approved and monitored by an Institutional Review Board (IRB).  An IRB is an independent committee of physicians, statisticians and others whose objective is to ensure that a clinical trial is ethical and the rights of study participants are protected.  The IRB initially approves the research and conducts periodic reviews.

The Rogosin Institute can conduct clinical research studies using either central (commercial) IRBs or the local IRB of Weill Cornell Medical College or The Rockefeller University.

Clinical and Translational Science Centers
The Rogosin Institute has access to the Clinical and Translational Science Center (CTSC) at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital-Weill Cornell Medical College and at The Rockefeller University, for inpatient and outpatient studies.
