Dear former, current, and future clinical research participants, I would like to send you my deepest gratitude. Without brave patients like you that make the voluntary sacrifices of time and dedication to partake in these clinical trials, we would have a difficult time progressing modern medicine. Without these selfless deeds, and willingness to help study specific diseases, humanity would have a troublesome time seeking new and better therapies. Your open mindedness and participation help fuel my motivation and drive to keep pursuing research with cutting edge medical devices and therapies.
"If we are not researching, we are not developing; Without the pursuit of studying diseases, we cannot progress modern medicine."
