Virtually all medical breakthroughs have been discovered through health research. Everyone benefits from such research— think of stamping out diseases like polio and smallpox; and life-saving treatments for heart disease, such as bypass surgery; and testing for cancers.
Doctors and other scientists conduct health research in an effort to keep you feeling healthy, to prevent you from developing diseases, and to treat you when you are not well. They try to understand the cause of diseases and why some people are more likely to suffer from them. These dedicated researchers strive to improve health for all, now and for generations to come.
If you want to be part of a healthier tomorrow, you can begin by participating in health research that can help you as well as future generations. There are research studies available for many diseases, as well as studies of healthy people.
