What is Clinical Research?
Clinical research involves carefully conducted investigations that uncover better ways to prevent, diagnose, and treat human disease. Did you know? Antibiotics, vaccines, and cancer treatments are just a few of the many medical advancements made possible by clinical research.
For BWH Researchers
The Center for Clinical Investigation (CCI) is the home for clinical research at Brigham and Women's Hospital. The CCI interfaces with Harvard Catalyst to provide expanded resources to investigators at all Harvard-affiliated institutions.
Medical advancements are made possible through the participation of research volunteers. There are a number of ways to get involved with clinical research at Brigham and Women's Hospital, as well as research at other hospitals.
