When you participate in clinical research, you become part of the Mayo Clinic team. Clinical studies help bridge research and patient care by evaluating therapies, drugs, diagnostic tools and patient care practices.
Healthy volunteers help advance medical science for all patients. Some studies look at healthy volunteers to learn how to keep people well, while others compare healthy volunteers with those who have specific illnesses.
Without volunteers, clinical studies are not possible. People participate in studies for many reasons. Whether or not you participate is a personal choice you make after carefully considering the risks and benefits.
ClinicalTrials.gov provides easy and free access to information on clinical studies around the world.
The Mayo Clinic Research Information Center can answer questions, discuss your research interests and locate active research studies.
