Main Article Content


Research is an activity carried out based on scientific principles and methods
systematically to obtain information, data, and information from related
subjects, with understanding the theory and proving assumptions and / or
hypotheses. The results obtained are conclusions that can be applied or
become additional knowledge for the progress of science. However, research
activities must still respect the rights and dignity of research subjects.
Health research includes biomedical, epidemiological, social, and behavioral
research. Some health research can be done in vitro, using mathematical
models, or computer simulations. If the research results are to be used for
humans, further research is needed using living materials (in vivo) such as
cell lines and tissue cultures. However, to observe, study, and conclude all
occurrences in living things as a whole, experimental animals are needed
because experimental animals have a value for each part of the body and
there are interactions between these body parts.
