ResearchMatch has connected me with a variety of different studies however my favorite one was a study done on the correlation between rhythm and music, and one’s genetics. The trial consisted of me taking an online test which tested my sense of rhythm and musical recall. Then, I got to send a DNA sample so they could correlate my results with my genetics. It was a very interesting study, and they even let me know where I fell musically and rhythmically compared to the rest of the country. It felt good to help out with someone’s research, even if there is no compensation the reward of helping someone else come closer to their research goals is enough!

I became a volunteer with ResearchMatch because I believe that clinical research offers us new information related to the development of new drugs and disease treatments. As a Hispanic living in the United States, I am very interested in contributing my opinion and being part of the medical studies that are carried out, and thus helping out community at large.
