Research studies are designed to test the effect of a medication or treatment in a group of volunteers, measure a drug's ability to treat the medical condition, monitor the drug's safety, and possible side effects. Trained doctors, nurses and researchers conduct clinical research studies called clinical trials. The study coordinator is in charge of the day-to-day running of the study. The principal investigator (usually a physician) has overall responsibility for carrying out the protocol. Learn more about Clinical Studies.
