This is why you participate in drug research
You can participate in drug research for various reasons. For example, because you want to give patients a better life. Or because you have a lot of time to spend freely during the research and you want to use the time at the research center in a pleasant or worthwhile manner. Or because you receive a compensation. Taking part in drug research is a worthwhile activity for everybody involved.
You are important for the development of new and better drugs
New research would not be possible without participants, and that would mean there would be no new drugs for patients. That is why PRA values people like you so much, people who participate in one of the studies into a new or improved drug. Each year about 2000 people in the Netherlands take part in drug research at PRA's research center.
