Current Clinical Trials

A Phase 3, Double-Blind, Randomized, Placebo-Controlled, Parallel-Group, 27-Week Trial To Evaluate The Efficacy, Safety, And Tolerability Of Two Fixed Doses Of Tavapadon In Early Parkinson’s Disease (TEMPO-1 TRIAL).

Summary: The purpose of this study is to evaluate the clinical efficacy, safety and pharmacokinetics (PK) of 2 fixed doses of tavapadon and placebo in participants with early PD.

A Phase 3, Double-Blind, Randomized, Placebo-Controlled, Parallel-Group, Flexible-Dose, 27-Week Trial To Evaluate The Efficacy, Safety, And Tolerability Of Tavapadon As Adjunctive Therapy For Parkinson’s Disease In Levodopa-Treated Adults With Motor Fluctuations (TEMPO-3 TRIAL)

Summary: The purpose of this study is to assess the effect of tavapadon on the change from baseline in total daily hours of “on” time without troublesome dyskinesia in L-Dopa-treated participants with Parkinson’s Disease (PD) who are experiencing motor fluctuations.

Phase 2b/3, Randomized, Double-blind, Placebo-controlled, Parallel-group, Multicenter Study to Evaluate the Safety and Efficacy of Dipraglurant (ADX48621) for the Treatment of Dyskinesia in Patients with Parkinson’s Disease Receiving Levodopa-based Therapy With or Without Concomitant Dopaminergic Medications

Summary: This study is designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of dipraglurant in PD patients with dyskinesia (randomized 1:1 to receive active or placebo) for 12 weeks (1 week at 150 mg per day and 11 weeks at 300 mg per day). The primary efficacy assessment will be based on the Unified Dyskinesia Rating Scale (UDysRS). Patients who complete the 12-week blinded treatment period may have the option to roll into an open-label safety extension study for an additional 12-month treatment period.


四色AV University of 四色AV Sciences offers 64,400 square feet dedicated to state-of-the-art research laboratories. The laboratories available for faculty and student use along with lab technician assistance consist of bacteria labs, instrument labs, chemistry labs, and cell culture labs. Each lab space is equipped with specialized research instrumentation and equipment such as chemical fume hoods, cell culture hoods, incubators, ultra-low cryogenic freezers, and 4oC refrigerators as well as the below. In addition, there are common areas such as cold rooms, dark rooms, procedure rooms, and cryo-storage rooms available for use.


Laboratory Access

Research Software Support





Proteomics at 四色AV University

Both highly-specialized equipment (e.g. NanoPro 1000 ultrasensitive capillary-electrophoresis-based nano-fluidic protein analysis system) and fundamental equipment (e.g. conventional Western blot analysis instruments and LI-COR’s Odyssey infra-red imaging system) are available for all of the researchers at 四色AV University of 四色AV Sciences.  The NanoPro 1000 instrument (higher throughput and 1,000-times more sensitivity compared to conventional Western blotting) analyzes protein expression levels and protein phosphorylation levels with exquisite sensitivity.  The NanoPro 1000 system thus allows for accurate analysis of protein expression/phosphorylation of lower-abundance proteins (previously unrecognized in biological samples when using conventional Western blot techniques) and also allows protein analysis in extremely small sample sizes (e.g. <100 mammalian cells).

Areas of Research

四色AV Research

The Office of the Associate Dean for Research (ADR) is responsible for the development and enhancement of the research infrastructure at the聽四色AV University of 四色AV Sciences聽College of 四色AV Medicine. The ADR leads college-wide strategic growth, transformation and new frontiers of discovery.

Nursing Research

The College of Nursing supports faculty and students in scholarly activities, including the discovery and application of research findings to client care and educational practices.

Pharmacy Research

At the College of Pharmacy, our mission focuses on preparing successful student pharmacists through innovative training in patient care and a commitment to scholarship and research.聽

Medical Research

A place where creativity and discovery go hand in hand to make a difference. Our research delves into molecular mechanisms of disease to create new and impactful clinical outcomes. Beyond our commitment to improving treatment, we utilize health disparity research so all our patients have access to proper healthcare. Innovation and change, for everyone.

Graduate Research

Graduate research is designed to enhance student learning and develop graduates who are highly competent academicians, researchers, critical thinkers and lifelong learners.
