    Default run, lead, conduct

    What word should I use to say that some process is going on or was going on and has finished. I know that for example "you run a business".
    But is it the same with "process", "scientific tests", "revolution", "negotiations", "research", "attack (offesive)", "conference", "meeting" ? Can I use "run" with all those nouns?

    Yes; or you could use "conduct" or "carry out" in most of these examples.
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....
