Making research more accessible
Research+Me is an online registry for people who are interested in taking part in clinical research. By signing up to the registry, you agree to receive information about studies that you may be eligible for.
Clinical trials are a type of research that looks at new tests and treatments and evaluates their effects on health outcomes. We specialise in late-phase clinical trials, which means that research has already happened to make sure the tests and treatments are safe to use. Late-phase trials look at whether the new tests and treatments are better than pre-existing ones.
Research+Me makes it easier for people to hear about and take part in clinical trials. In the past, researchers primarily recruited people to trials via hospitals and specialist clinics. Research+Me gives more people the opportunity to learn about clinical research and help improve healthcare for the wider community.
What happens when I sign up?
We will ask you to fill in a short online form to tell us a bit about yourself and any health conditions you have. We will then contact you when we are looking for research volunteers that match your profile.
You will receive all the information you need to decide whether you want to take part in the study. Taking part is entirely optional and we will never share your personal information.
You can contact us at any time to stop receiving information or to remove your details from Research+Me altogether.
Remember that by signing up to Research+Me, you are not yet committing to take part in any clinical trials. You are simply giving us permission to contact you when we have a study that you may be eligible for.
Why take part?
Research is needed for all common and rare conditions. It is only through research that we can develop better treatments, as well as improve diagnosis, prevention, care and quality of life for everyone.
People enjoy taking part in health research for many reasons:
- You could help improve healthcare for others, as well as give hope for future generations.
- You might learn more about your condition.
- Your health may be monitored more regularly.
- If you have an illness or condition, you might be able to try a new treatment.
- You will help researchers learn important new information.
