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.

Anyone may register to be a potential research volunteer through UIC’s secure ResearchMatch.org website portal. Potential volunteers can also learn more on the Frequently Asked Questions page.

Here's how it works:

  1. Fill out a few basic questions about yourself or the person you wish to register.
  2. Create your unique username and password that only you will know. 
  3. If you wish, you tell us a bit more about your health background (your responses are optional). 
  4. Submit your profile to ResearchMatch and wait to be contacted by researchers who think you'll be a good match for their study.
