How does research work?
Comment s'organise la recherche?
Who is involved in the research?
Investigating physicians: these are the doctors involved in the trial and they will follow you for its duration.
Sponsors (pharmaceutical laboratories, institutions, etc.): sponsors manage and finance the clinical trials.
Clinical Researchers: the clinical researchers will work closely with you. They will assist the investigating physician once you have given consent to take part and will take part in your follow up visits. They are the link between the sponsor and the trial and will be involved in arranging follow-ups and monitoring. They will be there to answer all of your questions.
