The Swedish Neuroscience Institute (SNI) is at the forefront of clinical care and many of our physicians perform clinical research to test the safety and effectiveness of new drugs and medical devices for diseases of the nervous system.

Patients who participate in clinical trials have the opportunity to receive FDA-approved investigational treatments that are not yet available outside of a research environment, and our research coordinators work closely with each patient and their physician to provide a predictable and comfortable clinical trial experience. Additionally, each participant has the satisfaction of knowing that they are contributing to improve the health and well-being of other patients just like themselves.

Center for Neurologic Restoration at SNI

The Center for Neurologic Restoration is recognized as a partner site for national clinical trials. After gaining FDA approval in December of 2018, focused ultrasound is now available as a standard treatment option for essential tremor, and Swedish is the only center in the Pacific Northwest to offer it.

This legacy continues. The Center for Neurologic Restoration is presently a site for a national clinical trial using MRI guided-focused ultrasound for individuals affected by Parkinson’s disease. To learn more, contact the Center for Neurologic Restoration

Research at the Swedish ALS Center 

As a member of the Northeast ALS Consortium (NEALS), our institution has access to various resources with experience and knowledge in ALS research. We have the opportunity to collaborate with other professional organizations and industry sponsors. We also receive up to date research information and innovative ideas to improve ALS patient care and disease understanding.  

Learn more about NEALS.  To learn more about possible opportunities to participate in ALS research, contact the Swedish Center for ALS


Swedish Neuroscience Institute also is the Pacific Northwest site for NeuroNEXT, an NIH-supported consortium of 25 centers around the country that will conduct clinical trials for patients with diseases of the nervous system.
