Patients are waiting. That is what motivates Mayo Clinic’s researchers in their quest for better treatments and cures. Clinical trials bridge the gap between research and patient care, and help a discovery become a therapy. The clinical trial journey is how a medical intervention — such as a drug, device, or procedure — moves from an idea into patient care. From the lab to research with the help of volunteers and through review and approval for use, this animation will help you understand the biomedical research pipeline.
