Welcome to researchmatch!
ResearchMatch has a simple goal – to bring together two groups of people who are
looking for one another: (1) people who are trying to find research studies, and (2)
researchers who are looking for people to participate in their studies. It is a free
and secure registry that has been developed by major academic institutions across
the country who want to involve you in the mission of helping today’s studies make a
real difference for everyone’s health in the future.
I was contacted through ResearchMatch to participate as a healthy volunteer for a study that may help researchers find the cause of motor neuron diseases such as ALS and SMA. No question about it, I enrolled:)
ResearchMatch has given me the opportunity to easily be involved in research. I don’t have to go looking for studies. Most recently, I enrolled in an interesting study that required completing an online survey. By being involved in research-I feel part of the solution.
"ResearchMatch is the recruitment tool our lab used when the lab first started in 2010 and it helped us to recruit a large number of healthy older adults that we still routinely contact today. It is a great asset for lab managers, like myself, and I have been extremely satisfied with the results!"
Erin Hussey, Ed. M. - Lab Manager for Dr. Brandon Ally
