Fab animation explaining clinical trials

Posted on November 7, 2011 by


Just reading Sense About Science’s latest newsletter – they’ve been involved in a channel 4 programme called Food Hospital looking at tackling claims about food and diet. Alongside the programme channel four has produced an animation on understanding clinical trials – How do drug trials work? – four minutes long and explains very simply all the phases a drug goes through in development. Includes where research using animals fits in the process and a quick explanation of who is involved in funding research.

For a more detailed explanation of clinical trials, check out this POSTnote published last week.
