Clinical trial recruitment goes online
NEWS IN BRIEF — Posted Dec. 7, 2009
A new recruitment registry has been established by the National Institutes of Health to match volunteers with clinical trials. ResearchMatch will connect individuals in the U.S. with researchers approved to recruit volunteers through the system.
"ResearchMatch offers a convenient solution to the complex, competitive and often costly participant recruitment system," said Gordon Bernard, MD, principal investigator of Vanderbilt University Medical Center's Institute for Clinical and Translational Research. The university is hosting the registry (link).
