Research at Alivation

Dr. Walt Duffy, Founder and Medical Director of Alivation Research, has been the principal investigator on over 150 clinical trials since 2005.  Alivation could not have done it without the help, support, and participation of the general public. Take a look at our currently offered studies to see if you are eligible to participate.

Alivation Research takes part in important research studies that  help further science and medicine, and we’re looking for qualified candidates to help.  Our goal is to measure results and to determine the safety and tolerability of treatment options.  Research helps make it possible for our patients to access the newest treatments when traditional treatments may not be working.  Participants are often compensated for their time and travel and they receive their study medication and devices at no cost.
