      • Clinical research–also called clinical trials or research studies–tests new drugs, devices, and equipment to find innovative new ways to treat and help patients.
      • Treatments and procedures that prove safe and effective in the lab move into clinical trials, where they're studied in humans.
  • Why is Research Important?

      • Research can lead to important discoveries and knowledge that saves lives and improves quality of life. 
      • Every new drug, medical device, or other healthcare technology requires careful research to prove that it's safe and effective.
