Why is Diversity in Clinical Trials Important?

People respond differently to medical treatments. That is why diverse and inclusive participation in clinical trials is needed to ensure that treatments are safe and effective for everyone.

Hear from Clinical Trial Participants

Melvin Mann

“CML is supposed to be a disease that strikes people in their sixties, and I was in my thirties.”

Trishna Bharadia

“As someone with long term chronic conditions, I believe that it’s in our interest to make the healthcare system, including the drug development cycle as patient focused as possible.”

Shanelle Gabriel

“Due to a lack of participation by women of color in a lot of these trials, researchers were not able to actually track if it worked for us.”

Finding Treatments Together

CISCRP brought several subject matter experts together to create a 3-part, video series that shares how new therapies are developed, the safeguards in place, how clinical trials are adapting to be more accessible in the current environment, and explains the role each person has involved in clinical research.
