Good Medical Research is research that has the potential to deliver results that can improve the capabilities and decision-making of clinicians, and that obtains its results via methods that respect the rights of human subjects. Settling questions about what counts as good medical research is an interdisciplinary enterprise, requiring contributions from statisticians, scientists, clinicians, and ethicists, and the MedicReS World Congress will be bringing these experts together.
Good Medical Research is important for enhancing our understanding of human health and disease and developing safe and effective medical interventions. Good Medical Research leads to good medical practice, which benefits society. Bad Medical Research, however, can have detrimental consequences for medicine and society. The MedicReS World Congress in 2014 ( nyc2014.medicres.org ) will help investigators learn how to conduct good medical research and avoid the problems that lead to bad medical research. READ MORE >>>>
