Working together for independent, inclusive, and bias-free research.
Who we are
HIRU is a non-profit organization that includes all citizens: scientists and non-scientists.
We connect everyone involved with health research: researchers, patients, and health institutions.
What we do
- Empower the community to improve health research
- Give people and patients a voice before the research is done
- Support the development of health research projects
Why we do it
Health research is expensive and biased. Many projects never get published, and a great deal is invested in unnecessary research.
Worst of all: patients—for the most part—are not taken into account.
