GHUCCTS launches new blog, "Let's Talk About Clinical Research"

Under the leadership of Dr. Carla Williams, the Georgetown-Howard Universities Center for Clinical and Translational Science (GHUCCTS) has created an educational blog that covers a variety of topics related to clinical research.

This website was created to give readers ways to:

  • Understand research terms that may be reported in the news
  • Use research information to make personal health choices
  • Be informed about how people who take part in research are protected  
  • Know how to find a research study
  • Think about questions to ask before joining a research study

Each post is written for the general public and has been reviewed by a plain language expert and a team of scientific reviewers. The blog currently features 11 individual posts, with more planned for future publication. We hope this site will prompt more conversations about clinical research, especially in relation to news coverage of the COVID-19 pandemic.
