Spring into Research!

Monday, April 25th, 2016

April is winding down, and May is approaching – a typically gorgeous month here in New England with vibrant flowers, plentiful celebrations (Mother’s Day, college graduations, Memorial Day).  If you a feeling an extra spring in your step thanks to the vernal equinox, perhaps you would like to learn more about becoming a clinical research volunteer.

Clinical research volunteers are people just like you – they come from all walks of life and socio-economic backgrounds. What clinical research volunteers have in common is the desire to help others by participating in research.   Volunteers are people who wish to share either their time, their talent or their treasure.  Research volunteers  give of themselves to help advance discoveries in medicine.  Typically a clinical trial involves testing an investigational medication (not yet approved by the FDA), or tests an investigational device.  Observational trials do not involve testing a medication.

Volunteers will receive study-related exams and testing at no cost and study-related product at no cost. No insurance is needed to participate in a research trial and reimbursement may be offered for time and travel.  At the request of the volunteer, results can be forwarded to your primary care physician or specialist.
