About Medical Research:-Biomedical Research (or experimentalmedicine), in general simply knownas medical research, is the basicresearch, applied research,Or translational research conducted to aidand support the body of knowledge in thefield of medicine. Medical research can bedivided into two general categories: the evaluation of new treatments for bothsafety and efficacy in what aretermed clinical trials, and all other researchthat contributes to the development of newtreatments. clinical research, microbiology,physiology, oncology, surgery and researchon many other non-communicable diseasessuch as diabetes and cardiovasculardiseases.
  • 3. The latter is termed preclinical research if itsgoal is specifically to elaborate knowledgefor the development of new therapeuticstrategies. A new paradigm to biomedicalresearch is being termed translationalresearch, which focuses on iterativefeedback loops between thebasic and clinical research domains toaccelerate knowledge translation from thebedside to the bench, and back again.Medical research may involve doingresearch on public health,biochemistry, clinical research,microbiology, physiology, oncology, surgeryand research on many other non-communicable diseases such as diabetesand cardiovascular diseases.
  • 4. The increased longevity of humans overthe past century can be significantlyattributed to advances resulting frommedical research. Among the majorbenefits have been vaccines for measlesand polio, insulin treatment fordiabetes, classes of antibiotics fortreating a host of maladies , medicationfor high blood pressure, improvedtreatments for AIDS, statins and othertreatments for atherosclerosis, newsurgical techniques such asmicrosurgery, and increasinglysuccessful treatments for cancer.
