"Good Medical Research"
It has thus become increasingly important that the teaching of good medical research methods be
expanded to scientists and institutions in low and middle-income countries that face major
health challenges in the decades ahead.There is a critical shortage of technical skills in these
countries--and for that matter in first-world nations--of researchers who are imbued with a deep
understanding of the fundamental ideas underlying the successful design and analysis of medical
and public health research studies.Such ideas must necessarily incorporate the latest algorithms
and statistical approaches afforded by the computing and communication revolutions,in addition
to the essential ethics of experimentation, policy advising and reporting to our communities
regarding the public’s health.

MedicReS Medical Research Education.
MedicReS aims to educate researchers and provoke discussion about good scientific method, statistics, ethics, publication, and education. Faced with stifling bureaucracy, competition for funds, and employer pressure to deliver results, finding the time and space to produce the best research can seem an arduous process. Events like the medicres world congress should help to emancipate researchers, refocusing them on the steps to ensure that their research is as rigourous as possible.
According to medicres, researchers should have sufficient knowledge not only in their own disciplines but also on ethical, biostatistical and methodological principles while conducting their research. MedicReS also aims at putting into practice good medical research philosophy and its components, namely,good planning, good analyzing, good reporting, good reviewing and good publishing, creating good evidence, turning evidence to good policy, developing a curriculum for good medical research education,defined not only as ethical and unbiased, but also powerful.
