Search tips

In the search box, enter a word or phrase, such as the name of a medical condition, type of treatment or the name of a drug.

You can search by Mayo Clinic location using the "By location" hyperlinks below the search box.

Additional filters on search results page allow you to narrow your search results by location, study status, gender, age, healthy volunteer, cancer-related only studies or the phase of the study.

If you want to see only studies that are actively recruiting and accepting volunteers, check that field below the search box.

The search results page displays a list of studies that fit your search terms. You can modify your search or use the filtering options if the search results do not include what you are looking for.

You may improve your results by:

  • Making new selections and/or adding terms to narrow a search and get fewer results
  • Deleting selections and/or terms to broaden a search and get more results
  • Changing any selections and/or terms to do a related search
  • Search for IRB numbers and other hyphenated terms using quote marks around the hyphenated number or words

If your new search returns no results, the search may be too specific. To broaden your search, remove one or more search terms or fields and search again.
