Til Patienter / For Patients

Hvis du melder dig som forsøgsperson til et sundhedsvidenskabeligt forsøg, bidrager du til større viden om din sygdom. I nogle forsøg er der brug for forsøgspersoner med en bestemt sygdom (patienter), mens der i andre forsøg er brug for raske forsøgspersoner.

If you decide to participate in a clinical trial, you help researchers get new and valuable knowledge about your disease. Some trials require patients with a specific disease while others require participation of healthy individuals.

For Healthcare Professionals

Trial Nation exists to facilitate dialogue, collaborations and networks between companies as well as professionals who are conducting clinical research in Denmark, or who are seeking to be involved with a research network within a specific area.

About Us
