Why Clinical Research?
Every life-changing medical discovery begins with a clinical trial.
GUIDE TO CLINICAL TRIAL PARTICIPATION
DID YOU KNOW?
Not many people think about this, but you have directly benefited from clinical research. It’s true! Anyone who has ever taken medications or had to undergo a form of physical therapy, medical procedure, or device can thank prior clinical trials.
WHAT ARE CLINICAL TRIALS?
Clinical trials are research studies performed on people that aim at evaluating a medical, surgical, or behavioral intervention. Researchers use them to find out if a new treatment, like a new drug, diet, or medical device (for example, a pacemaker), is safe and effective for people.
Research studies play an incredibly important role in our society because they help determine if new treatments are safe and effective. Unfortunately, many don’t ever get off the ground, because it can be very difficult to reach the enrollment goal for a given clinical trial.
Clinical Research offers access to cutting-edge medical care and medications not available yet in the market. You don't need to pay for anything and health insurance is not required. Aside from receiving medical care at no cost, and investigational medications, you may also receive monetary compensation for your time and travel.
