The UCLA Gender Health Program supports a number of clinical trials and educational opportunities.
Clinical trials are an important step in discovering new medical treatments. Each study is conducted with actual patients and is designed to answer scientific questions and to find new and better ways to provide care for our transgender and gender diverse patients. The following UCLA clinical trials are currently open for enrollment:
