Study Recruitment

Consent to Contact

The University’s Consent to Contact initiative is a program by which UHealth patients can consent to be contacted about clinical study opportunities for which they qualify.

From this pool, researchers can search and identify potential willing research participants who meet their study criteria. By following a 4 step process, researchers can contact patients and begin the recruitment process.

To begin, go to the Consent to Contact for Researchers page.

ResearchMatch Connects Investigators
with Potential Study Participants

University of Miami investigators have access to ResearchMatch, a national database of volunteers for research studies. This unique recruitment tool, funded by the National Institutes of Health Clinical and Translational Science Award program, connects researchers and potential participants in a convenient way.

ResearchMatch is a free and secure registry comprised of thousands of volunteers and researchers. Investigators can use it in two ways: to view aggregate data regarding the registry population or to search and recruit volunteers.

To have recruiting privileges, a Principal Investigator and/or authorized recruitment proxy must submit evidence of having an approved IRB study.
