Find a Study

Your team in Primary Care strongly supports research. Our staff members participate in research studies and often lead that research. Do consider participating.

The following listing(s) are for research conducted by Mayo Clinic and the listing(s) are intended for your consideration as a member of our community.

Visit the Clinical Trials at Mayo Clinic website to find trials that you might join. Clinical trials are studies where patients with certain conditions are allocated to different treatments by random (as in the flip of a coin). To learn more about the Clinical Trial Journey view this short video, it is available in both English and Spanish

In addition, we will post additional studies below when the investigator has requested that the study be advertised directly to our community. 

  • Recruiting healthy teenagers for a brain scan study

    Mayo Clinic is seeking eligible volunteers for a research study. You may be eligible to participate if: 

    • You are 12-18 years of age
    • You have never had treatment of depression or other psychiatric disorders

    The purpose of this study is to examine the brain function of healthy adolescents and adolescents with depression. 

    Participants will come to Mayo Clinic for a screening visit (approximately two hours) and then travel to the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, Minn., for two magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans (this visit takes approximately 4 hours and will be scheduled on a Friday). 

    Participants are reimbursed for their time and travel to Minneapolis. 

    For more information, contact Paul Croarkin, DO (507-283-2557), Marjorie Gresbrink (507-255-0624), or Jeremy Weiss (507-255-0001). 

  • Do you have a teen with depression?

    Mayo Clinic is seeking eligible volunteers for a research study. Your adolescent may be eligible to participate if: 

    • They are between the ages of 12 and 18
    • They have been diagnosed with a major depressive disorder
    • They have been depressed for at least the last four weeks

    The purpose of this study is to see if transcranial magnetic stimulation therapy can be used to treat depression in adolescents. (This therapy is currently approved by the FDA to treat adults with depression.)

    Study participants will come every weekday for six weeks (total of 30 treatments). Each treatment session is one hour in length and you and your adolescent will be asked to complete an assessment each week. 

    Participants will be reimbursed for their time and parking.
