“Without us, there can’t be any research, and without research there can’t be any new methods, there can’t be any new medicines, there can’t be any cures.”

- Carol Schulte, clinical trials volunteer



Merck cares deeply about helping the world be well. We strive to address the world’s most profound unmet medical needs through innovative scientific discovery. Clinical trials are an essential part of the drug development process, and we are indebted to the thousands of volunteers – patients and healthy persons – who participate in clinical trials.
