Studies Enrolling at Lincoln Research — July 2016


Lincoln Research is looking for volunteers for several studies exploring different conditions and treatment options. Here are some of the studies we’re conducting right now. This list changes often, so make sure to like us on Facebook or subscribe to our newsletter for updates.

Migraine Studies

We have two different studies looking for volunteers who suffer from migraine headaches. Information on both is here:

Migraine fixed


Bipolar Disorder

We’re also looking for patients with Bipolar Disorder for a study. Information is here:



We’re looking for subjects with depression (Major Depressive Disorder) to volunteer for a new study. You can find more information on our website or check out depression resources on our blog, here.


For our study on schizophrenia, we’re interested in speaking to people who suffer from schizophrenia, caretakers of patients with schizophrenia, and clinicians who treat patients with schizophrenia. You can find more information on our website or call at (401) 305-5200.

If interested in participating in a study, call (401) 305-5200 or contact us using our web form.

Current Studies at Lincoln Research


Lincoln Research is a clinical research site dedicated to high-quality patient care. We specialize in research of psychiatric conditions such as Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), but have conducted studies in a wide variety of areas. If you’re interested in participating in a study, but none of our current studies interest you, be sure to check back in on our study listings page every couple of months to see what’s new.

Here are the studies we have going right now.


Migraine fixed


Are you or a loved one currently taking Invega Sustenna (paliperidone palmitate) for the treatment of schizophrenia and not having an adequate response?

This study is investigating whether a newly FDA-approved medicine may provide adequate treatment for your symptoms of schizophrenia

To be eligible for this study, you must:

  • Be 18 to 65 years of age
  • Have a diagnosis of schizophrenia
  • Have received at least 3 doses of Invega Sustenna (paliperidone palmitate) prior to the study

Call our office to see if this clinical trial may be appropriate for you!

Genetic Testing for Depression

Understanding the Different Types of Migraine


About 18% of women, and 6% of men, suffer from migraine. This illness is more common than diabetes and asthma combined, and comes in many different, complex forms. Just as we did with the types of Bipolar Disorder last week, we hope to give an overview of the ways in which migraines can present themselves.

As with the Bipolar post, this is not meant as a diagnostic tool. If you are suffering from symptoms that you believe to be migraines, talk to your doctor.

There are two “main” categories of migraine: with aura and without aura. An “aura” is a set of symptoms that starts shortly before the migraine, and lasts until the migraine begins or a little afterwards. These symptoms can include visual disturbances, numbness, weakness, nausea, tingling, or confusion.

Migraines themselves, as well as the headaches, can include a variety of symptoms including nausea, blurred vision, confusion, and fatigue.

However, there is another, more rare type of migraine called migraine without headache, in which these other symptoms  are present without the headache. The most common symptoms of a migraine without headache are disturbances in vision and nausea, which can lead to vomiting. However, there are many symptoms and experiences–located all over the body–that may technically be the result of migraines, even if you don’t feel any headaches.

chronic migraine can be diagnosed if you experience migraine symptoms for more than 15 days every month for three months. Chronic migraine is often debilitating and is most commonly treated with preventative medication.
