You can make a difference through research.
Researchers are working hard to identify new treatments and strategies to improve health and to understand the diseases that make us sick, but in order to succeed they need both healthy research participants and participants with medical conditions. Often, studies end because they don't have enough participants, leaving important questions unanswered.
You can make a difference by participating in research. Health research ranges from simple questionnaires and screenings to clinical trials of investigational drugs and devices.
There are two ways for you to learn more and get involved: You can join ResearchMatch, which connects potential volunteers with researchers, and you can also see Current Studies at UK.
ResearchMatch helps researchers and potential study volunteers connect.
What is ResearchMatch.org?
You can connect with studies at more than 111 institutions across the country by joining ResearchMatch.org, a free, secure national registry that brings together volunteers who are interested in research and researchers who are looking for participants. Join the more than 83,000 volunteers who are helping shape the future of health care. Simply register and wait to be matched with studies that might interest you, or search for specific medical conditions and studies.
