Research studies play an important role in science and help doctors and scientists learn more about different healthcare related topics. Different types of studies all share a common purpose: to help people live healthier lives. Whether participating for a specific disease or as a healthy participant, your participation has a direct impact on advancing science.
Volunteers, or study participants, like you help make these advances in science possible. These studies are all monitored by regulatory organizations and reviewed by Institutional Review Boards (IRBs) to ensure the safety and interests of participants are protected.
Participation in research is always voluntary and people who decide to take part can choose to stop participating at any time.
