Clinical research cannot happen without volunteers like you. ResearchMatch is an online registry that can help you find research studies that you might want to participate in. It also helps researchers find the volunteers they need for their studies.

Mayo Clinic is part of a national consortium that developed and uses ResearchMatch.

Anyone in the U.S. can join ResearchMatch. Parents and guardians can register youth under age 19 or adults who may not be able to enter their own information.

Why join ResearchMatch?

  • Reduce the time that you spend searching for research studies that you qualify for
  • Improve your chances of being matched with research studies that interest you
  • Get involved in a national group of volunteers that might help improve the positive health impacts of future research for everyone

Registration is free and takes 5 to 10 minutes. By registering for ResearchMatch, you are not registering to participate in any particular study. Registration lets you indicate your willingness to be contacted about studies that may be a good fit for you.

You can find answers to many frequently asked questions on the ResearchMatch website.
