Research in Your Backyard: Elevating the Science of Clinical Trials

There’s a good chance you can find a clinical trial taking place practically in your own backyard. Biopharmaceutical companies are conducting clinical trials of new medicines in collaboration with clinical research centers, university medical schools and hospitals all across the country. These trials provide patients with access to new potential therapeutic options. Participating in clinical trials is an important way to help advance health care. Each new drug being studied requires thousands of volunteers to take part in clinical trials. Clinical studies also stimulate job growth and economic strength.
