Research Studies

Adult Research

The University of Utah Division of Endocrinology maintains an ongoing interest in participating in clinical trials. Over many years we have conducted trials of drugs for osteoporosis, diabetes, testosterone replacement, growth hormone, chronic kidney disease and acromegaly. This means that we are able to stay at the front of advancing research for treatment of these conditions.

Please contact Deborah Burton at 801-585-1566 if you are interested in being in a research study.
