What is Clinical Research?
Clinical Research is research that either directly involves a particular person or group of people or uses materials from humans, such as their behavior or samples of their tissue. Participants in clinical research are protected by guidelines and regulations such as FDA regulations, the World Medical Association's Declaration of Helsinki ethical policy, and NIH Clinical Research Policy. The Association for the Accreditation of Human Research Protection Programs (AAHRPP) is an independent nonprofit accrediting body, which promotes high quality clinical research. There are two types of clinical research: clinical research studies and (the more heavily regulated fo the two) clinical trials.
