Carefully planned clinical trials test new medical discoveries for safety and efficacy, so that they can be used in everyday clinical practice and health decision making.
The goal of ResearchMatch is to bring together people who are trying to find research studies, and researchers who are looking for people to participate in their studies. Many studies are looking for healthy people of all ages, while some are looking for people with specific health conditions.
The ResearchMatch registry is free and secure, and anyone can join.
ResearchMatch is a Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) initiative funded by the National Center for Research Resources, a part of the NIH.
