Understanding Clinical Trials for Participants

Understanding Clinical Trials (Research Studies)

Choosing to participate in a research study is an important personal decision. These frequently asked questions provide detailed information about clinical studies. In addition, it is often helpful to talk to a physician, family members, or friends about deciding to join a study. After identifying some study options, the next step is to contact the study research staff and ask questions about specific studies.
