The overall goal of health science is the improvement of human health through scientific research.
Health-related knowledge is mainly acquired through research studies. These studies may include evaluating new medications and treatments for overall effectiveness and safety. The development of antibiotics and vaccines for major diseases are a few examples of the benefits that have come from preclinical research. This type of research involves the creation of new approaches to therapy and treatment.
