Research plays an essential role in development of science. This paper gives the main reasons for not achieving full potential of research to reduce human suffering (the objective of clinical research). Some examples are given to illustrate these reasons. Publication of findings from research and evaluation studies and open discussion of the findings leave much to be desired. Importance of publishing research papers quickly and utilization of findings are emphasized. To overcome all obstacles for good quality scientific research, it suggests that National and International Research Authorities staffed by scientists with open mind and broad vision should be set up to constantly review funding of research and utilization of research findings and to suggest further meaningful research. It points out that defective education is a basic general obstacle for development of scientific research. It recalls the exhortation by Einstein that “The important thing is not to stop questioning” and stresses that we can make progress only if we ask lot of questions, discuss these freely and objectively and carry out scientific studies to find proper answers.
