Discovery Radio – Episode #14 – Biomedical Research and the Community

Every doctor, scientist, and researcher has a personal reason for doing the work that they do. Each of us, as community members, has the same passion about a disease or illness that has touched our lives or a loved one in some way. On CTSI Discovery Radio, we’ll look at community-driven research. What is it? How do you go about engaging communities or special populations? How and when do we take the lead from the community we serve?
