Ridgeview Research provided clinical research studies for our community for 20 years, working with volunteer study participants to help make a significant impact on health care for future generations.

Due to the economic challenges of conducting research in our evolving health care environment, Ridgeview Research has stopped pursuing new research studies and ended all recruitment efforts, effective in November 2013.

While Ridgeview Research will no longer conduct clinical studies for pharmaceutical companies, Ridgeview will continue to participate in cancer clinical trials through the Metro-Minnesota Community Clinical Oncology Program. These clinical studies provide community members with access to the newest therapies available for cancer treatment, symptom management and cancer prevention services. The CCOP studies will be conducted under the direction of the Ridgeview Oncology Service Line.
