ResearchMatch: An Online Platform for Research Volunteers
The UIC CCTS is fortunate to be one of 111 institutions offering ResearchMatch as a tool for our patients and community members to find clinical trials in their area.
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.
Here's how it works:
- Fill out a few basic questions about yourself or the person you wish to register.
- Create your unique username and password that only you will know.
- If you wish, you tell us a bit more about your health background (your responses are optional).
- Submit your profile to ResearchMatch and wait to be contacted by researchers who think you'll be a good match for their study.
