Research studies often end without answering important questions because of a lack of volunteers. To make it easier to participate in the research process, ITHS and the University of Washington’s School of Medicine have built the Participate in Research website to connect members of the community to research study teams.
Researchers are currently looking for study participants of all ages, genders, ethnicities, backgrounds, and health statuses so they can help find the answers needed to improve the health of our community.
The ITHS is pleased to participate in ResearchMatch, a free, nationwide database of potential research volunteers sponsored by the National Institutes of Health. The goal of ResearchMatch is to bring volunteers together with researchers working towards new medical treatments (not just clinical trials).
Many studies are looking for healthy people of all ages, while some are looking for people with specific health conditions. Considering becoming a ResearchMatch volunteer? Visit the ResearchMatch website to learn more about the registry, and be sure to read the Volunteer FAQ.
