PPD Heroes

PPD Heroes is a program dedicated to sharing the inspiring stories of individuals facing significant health conditions who have benefited from clinical trials through the therapies research helps develop. The goal of the PPD Heroes program is to increase public awareness and encourage education about the crucial role clinical trials play in delivering life-changing therapies and medicines to patients.

Our Mission

Clinical trials are the key to delivering life-changing medicines and transforming lives

Increasing the level of patient participation in clinical trials could help researchers accelerate their efforts to develop new treatments. For people facing illness, participating in a clinical trial can offer new opportunities for cutting-edge treatment and close medical supervision.

We are honored to share the stories of several everyday heroes who are living with or who have overcome significant health conditions through using life-saving medicines developed in clinical trials. These heroes share their personal stories to spotlight the importance of clinical research in improving health and saving lives.

They are inspiring examples of how patients can play a more active role in their own health care, gain access to new research treatments before they are widely available and help others by contributing to medical research.
