What is the most fascinating experience you have had during a clinical trial?
TIPS TO PREPARE
TOP ANSWERS
Example #1
"In my previous position I was working a clinical trial for a new sleep aid drug. Our trial group was to determine the level of the drugs of effectiveness in assisting adult insomnia. About halfway through the trial, we found that our subjects were not only experiencing better sleep patterns but their skin problems were also clearing up. It's always fascinating when you discover an alternate use or solution during a clinical trial."
Example #2
"As a grad student, I was asked to participate in a cancer research program that was on the brink of discovering a new treatment in pediatric oncology. In this role, I was able to partner with some of the most advanced and recognized professionals in research. It was thrilling to be a part of the team that advanced the study, which is now in trial across the country."
Example #3
"I have been part of many clinical trials through my six-year career in clinical research. I would say that the most interesting trial I have been a part of was testing a new marijuana-based drug and its effect on epileptic seizures. The drug, in fact, reduced seizure episodes in the test subjects by 87%. I am excited to see where marijuana- drug research takes us in the future."
