Clinical Trials

The department for Clinical Neurosciences and Preventive Medicine is engaged in a variety of clinical trials including pure academic trials and others sponsored by pharmaceutical industry. The special situation of having an office at the Neurological Department of the Donauklinikum Tulln opens the opportunity to involve medical specialists and physicians during their training in those trials. This allows both sides to profit from the synergetic potential between the Danube University and the Donauklinikum.
