Did you know that millions of people participate in clinical trials each year? Clinical trials are designed to study investigational medicines for many different illnesses and medical conditions - from cancer to migraines, from heart disease to psoriasis. Most people who participate in one clinical trial say they would join another if given the chance.
Did you know that you might be able to participate in a clinical trial? Browse the list of research areas below to see if a Lilly clinical trial may be a good fit for you.
The video series below provides information about clinical trials, such as how new therapies are developed and how clinical trials are adapting to new approaches in health care.
General Overview of the Clinical Research Process
This animated video is narrated by Dr. Jonathan Jackson, a clinical researcher and clinical trial participant, to describe how new treatments are developed, why people choose to join clinical trials, and more.
Basics of Clinical Trial Participation
This animated video describes the basic requirements for all clinical trials, how the safety of study participants is monitored, and how research is adapting in this modern era.
The Clinical Research Team Is Similar to a Sports Team
This animated video uses a sports analogy to describe the many different roles of people involved in clinical research, from study participants and their friends and family to the study doctor and study sponsors.
