Clinical Research Studies  (Clinical Trials) are of primary importance to the NIMH mission.

The NIMH Intramural Research Programs (IRP) conducts clinical research at the NIH Clinical Center, in Bethesda, Maryland. The research is designed to expedite the exchange of information between scientists and clinicians so that basic findings can be moved quickly from the laboratory setting to the treatment of patients at the bedside. NIMH’s Office of the Clinical Director  ensures that persons who participate in research study protocols receive the highest quality of clinical care within a research setting.
