Why is Clinical Research Important?
Clinical research has transformed modern medicine.
Just 50 years ago, doctors did not have the knowledge or resources to treat some of the world’s deadliest diseases or more common conditions. Many of the medical advances we have today had not been discovered: certain antibiotics and vaccines, drug therapies for cancer, drugs that lower high blood pressure and cholesterol, and tests like MRI and CT scans.
Clinical research helped develop these treatments, and the decades ahead hold as much promise. Discoveries and advances in genetics, drugs, surgical techniques, and diagnostic tools will continue to transform medicine and positively impact the lives of our friends, family, and neighbors.
