Advancing research is at the core of the University of Tennessee Health Science Center’s mission. UTHSC investigators are dedicated to paving the way for innovative patient-centered research and development with a clinical and translational focus. By working together, we can transform lives and build healthy communities.
Research affects our everyday lives – ranging from the medicine we take to the health of our families. Becoming a research participant is a gift you give of yourself to benefit your family, your community, and the health of people everywhere.
UTHSC is a member of ResearchMatch.org, a free, secure online tool that brings together potential study participants who are looking for research studies or clinical trials with investigators who are looking for volunteers.
Anyone living in the United States, including Puerto Rico, can join ResearchMatch (RM). People of all ages and backgrounds are welcome. A parent, legal guardian, or caretaker can register a child under 18, or register an adult that may not be able to join on their own.
Many studies need healthy volunteers as well as those with all types of health conditions. It is always your choice to decide what studies may interest you. You are not required to participate in a study if you join ResearchMatch. It is always your choice!
