Why is patient-centered research important?
Patient-centered research ensures that the questions we seek to answer are relevant to our patients and improve their lives in a meaningful way. Our team recognizes how important it is to foster partnerships between patients, providers, and researchers in order to improve the quality of our research as well as our ability to translate our findings into better patient-centered care.

What insights or guidance can you share with patients on the importance of diversity in research?
Diversity is so critical to the success of any research project. Diversity of study participants makes certain that our findings are broadly applicable to the different communities we serve. It’s important to know how therapies, such as aspirin, affect individuals of different ages, sexes, races, and ethnicities in order to identify the best treatments available for our patients.
