Introduction to Clinical Research Methods will introduce you to the importance of clinical research, including how studies are developed, structured, and implemented. You will also get hands-on experience with a variety of clinical sample collection methods. We will broadly review topics important to clinical research, including an overview of bioethics in research, the basics of clinical study structure and design, data collection, and the importance of good record keeping. You will apply this knowledge by developing your own clinical research project and creating a proposal in the structure of a grant funding application. You will also learn about topics related to clinical sample collection, including basic anatomy, the tools and procedures used, and the appropriate application of these procedures, as well as learning how to collect some basic clinical samples such as nasal swabs and blood samples.
