Clinical Research Education Series (CRES) | “ Including Diverse Populations in NIH-funded Clinical Research"
This presentation will provide information on the importance of including appropriate participants in research which leads to sound science that informs clinical practice. NIH has longstanding policies to ensure the inclusion of women, members of racial and ethnic minority groups, and individuals across the lifespan in NIH-funded research. We will discuss how, in recent years, NIH has updated its policies to ensure that study results are generalizable across populations and that results of Phase 3 clinical trials are made available by sex or gender, race, and ethnicity.
