Promotional Materials

We have developed the following materials to connect individuals to ClinicalResearchTrials.nih.gov. You will find things like resources for grantees, which can be personalized by following the instructions on the poster webpage.

Infographics

This one-page guide describes different kinds of clinical studies. It explains why researchers might use them and highlights each type’s strengths and weaknesses. We hope this guide can serve as a useful resource, whether you’re describing the results of a study to the public or the design of a trial to a potential participant.

Why do researchers do different kinds of clinical studies?

Different types of clinical studies are used in different circumstances. Depending on what is known and what isn’t, scientists may even study the same research question using different kinds of studies and in different groups of people.

Posters
