Hi there,


I am sure looking at your quaklification, you are aware of what is Clinical Research

But never-the less, before I answer your question, I would give you a little brief on Clinical research first.

Clinical research is a field of medical sciences that determines the effectiveness and safety of medications, devices or machinery used, diagnostic products, and treatment regimes intended for human use. These may be used for prevention or treatment or for diagnosing an ailment in humans. In short Clinical research refers to the lifespan of a drug, right from its inception in the lab to its introduction to the consumers etc.


Hoping that this brief introduction has given you a picture.

Clinical research can be done by a research team specializing with knowledge of science, human anatomy, drugs or medicine making and its formulation.

Your background of medical, i.e, dentistry, which also covers certain aspects of human anatomy.
You also are a medical student with a comprehensive knowledge of certain medical terms used and also well aware of medical regulations and dealings.

Since clinical research involves testing the drug initially on animals and further then on humans.
So one needs to be well equipped with medical terminologies and issues and also ways and means to handling it.

Also drugs are commonly produced, whether it is related to regular bodily issues or dental issues.

Your knowledge regarding dental and nerves related to it can give a better idea, say while producing an antibiotics related to pain.

Hope you got an idea through this.



Since you are into the medical fraternity and my knowledge is a bit restricted to whatever i read, my request would be to get in touch or discuss with a senior CRM scientists and get a clarification as to your role in the research industry or clinical trials, which according to me, your role is quite significant being a part of the medical fraternity.

Wish you good luck dr............
