Northwestern University Research Participation Website

Want to contribute to the future of medicine? Sign up to be a research volunteer. You can search for specific studies that are recruiting now, or you can join a registry to be contacted for future studies.

Researchers are always looking for people to participate in their studies, and this is a comprehensive list of studies that are currently recruiting at Northwestern. Some will have what's called a "screener", a series of questions that will help determine your eligibility; Others will just have contact information for that particular study.

A registry is a way for you to opt-in for clinical research, and a way for researchers to have a pool of people to turn to for their studies. It consists of a set of questions about health-related issues. The types of questions asked depend on the focus of the registry. By joining a registry you are saying you'd like to be contacted for research studies at Northwestern.
