This helpful video discusses what a research study is and how you can get involved. The video was produced by ResearchMatch.org.
ResearchMatch brings together people who are trying to find research studies and clinical trials, and researchers who are looking for volunteers. Research is a way to discover knowledge that can have a positive impact on the health of society. Most research studies need a certain number of people to participate, but many end too early because too few volunteers join them. Even when enough people join research studies, it may be difficult to find the right match for them. ResearchMatch helps solve this problem by matching you with researchers who need volunteers like you. It is a free and secure registry, and you can be involved in its mission of helping make a real difference in people’s health in the future. Anyone can join, and 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.
