Welcome to the Research Channel

Through medical research, we've made many important discoveries. For example, taking aspirin is good if you're having a heart attack, and having a mammogram can help detect breast cancer. Clinical research studies are an organized way to learn more about medical conditions and treatments, while keeping the participants as safe as possible.
 

Welcome to the Research Health Channel by eMedTV. Here you will find articles on a number of topics, including what it's like to be in a clinical trial. You will also learn how medical research is designed to keep the safety, privacy, and well-being of the participants in mind. Whether you are thinking of participating in a study yourself or you have a loved one already participating, this channel has the information you need.
 
Many people begin their eMedTV research experience by clicking on any of the featured research articles located on this page.
