COPD Research Studies

Interested in joining a clinical research trial?

We are currently conducting COPD studies with multiple treatments offered. These studies hope to prove that these treatments are effective at alleviating some of the discomforts that accompany individuals suffering from COPD or emphysema. Medications are provided at absolutely no cost, with no insurance needed. You may also be reimbursed for your time and travel and will receive care from physicians affiliated with the Clinical Research Center of Alabama.

For more information on any of the following COPD or emphysema clinical research studies, please contact Will O’Donnell by calling 205.209.4179 or emailing
