​Integrative Medicine Research and Clinical Trials

About Our Research

The UPMC Center for Integrative Medicine is dedicated to increasing knowledge about the effectiveness and safety of complementary and integrative medicine approaches.

Other integrative medicine modalities may not have been subjected to the same level of scientific inquiry as western medicine treatments. The Center for Integrative Medicine, in concert with the University of Pittsburgh, is actively pursuing research to investigate the benefits of these therapies.

These studies, and the research mission of the center, are supported by:

  • Local pilot funds
  • The National Institutes of Health
  • Philanthropic donations
