Research Summaries

A research plain language summary is a short, easy-to-understand description of a scientific study. It helps make research findings clear to the community partners, clinical leaders and staff, and community residents. ISCCCE has created several of these summaries from our published research to help more people understand and engage with our work. By offering these summaries, ISCCCE aims to better share our research with the public so that valuable insights reach more people.
