Current Research at the Institute for Reproductive Medicine and Science at Saint Barnabas
A number of research studies are currently underway at IRMS. All research activities at the Institute have been carefully reviewed and approved by the Institutional Review Board of the Saint Barnabas Medical Center. Prior to enrollment in any study protocol, patients are carefully counseled by the medical staff – no work is initiated without the clear consent of each patient. Treatment-based research initiatives at the Institute always involve the application of novel procedures or techniques that are expected, based on scientific principles or previous research, to benefit the participating patient. The purpose of this type of research is to scientifically prove that the new procedure is beneficial, and to determine the degree of benefit.
