NIMH supports a large number of research studies, including both laboratory and clinical research. Clinical research trials enroll people with disorders being studied to participate in tests of new ways to prevent, detect, or treat disease. Some studies enroll people without identified health problems to provide baseline information on health. Clinical research trials are at the heart of all medical advances.
