What is Clinical Research

Clinical research is about finding out new knowledge that could lead to changes in treatments, policies or care.

There are many different types of research from studies in a scientific laboratory to those that observe and examine people with different conditions or develop new treatments. Research might be concerned with preventing disease and promoting good health or finding out people’s experience of different services and support in the community.

There are often lots of acronyms that are used in research; this helpful link explains them: http://www.invo.org.uk/resource-centre/jargon-buster/

We work with thousands of patient and public volunteers to conduct research driving the next generation of treatments and care. Find out more about the specific studies we are supporting here.
