ResearchMatch For Patients
ResearchMatch is a free and secure registry that connects people who are trying to find research studies and researchers who are looking for study participants.
Research affects our everyday lives – ranging from the medicine we take to the health of our families. Becoming a research participant is a gift you give of yourself to benefit your family, your community and the health of people everywhere.
Research needs healthy volunteers as well as those with medical conditions. All too often important research studies end early because there are too few research participants in the study. ResearchMatch helps this problem by connecting people who want to participate in studies get connected with the research studies that may be a good ‘match’ for them through its secure, online matching tool.
Is ResearchMatch for me?
Anyone can join ResearchMatch. Many studies are looking for healthy people of all ages, while some are looking for people with specific health conditions. ResearchMatch can help ‘match’ you with any type of research study, ranging from surveys to clinical trials, always giving you the choice to decide what studies may interest you.
ResearchMatch is a collaborative project, led by the Vanderbilt Institute for Clinical & Translational Research, and involves a more than 100 academic and non-profit institutions. The University of Miami is a member of the ResearchMatch network.
