Where can I find a clinical trial?

NIMICT Collection

"ResearchMatch has a simple goal – to bring together two groups of people who are looking for one another:

(1) people who are trying to find research studies, and (2) researchers who are looking for people to participate in their studies.

It is a free and secure registry that has been developed by major academic institutions across the country who want to involve you in the mission of helping today's studies make a real difference for everyone's health in the future."

A registry is "collect information about people who have a specific disease or condition, while others seek participants of varying health status who may be willing to participate in research about a particular disease. Individuals provide information about themselves to these registries on a voluntary basis. Registries can be sponsored by a government agency, nonprofit organization, health care facility, or private company."
