At Main Line Health, we believe that research is essential for advancing health care, leading to medical breakthroughs that improve and save lives. Our goal is to rapidly translate research findings into clinical care that benefits our patients.
Lankenau Institute for Medical Research (LIMR) Founded in 1927, Lankenau Institute for Medical Research (LIMR) is one of only a few freestanding, hospital-associated biomedical research centers in the United States. As the research center for Lankenau Medical Center and Main Line Health, which serve the western suburbs of Philadelphia, LIMR conducts laboratory-based and clinical investigations in a tightly knit, multidisciplinary community of scientists, nurses and physicians.
Clinical Trials Central to clinical research is the clinical trial, a research study that tests how new medications, detection or diagnostic tools, or devices work in humans. Our multidisciplinary research teams offer a variety of trials for cancer, cardiac and other patients, providing Main Line Health patients access to potential new treatments, cutting-edge healthcare choices and the opportunity to advance medical knowledge.
Institutional Review Board The Office of Research Affairs (ORA) is structured to facilitate the review process of human subject research by the MLH IRB. We are a resource for navigating the realm of regulatory compliance and fostering the ethical conduct of human subject research within the MLHS research community at large.
