Participants FAQs

Research studies help determine whether new treatments are safe and effective. And research participants make it all possible.

Participants may receive specific interventions — which may be investigational medications, devices, or procedures — according to a research plan (referred to as a protocol) developed by the scientists and doctors involved in the research. Research studies may compare a new medical approach to a standard one that is already available, to a placebo that contains no active investigational medication, or to no intervention at all. These elements vary depending on the research study, and the research study team will discuss these in detail before you agree to participate. With participant safety top of mind, governing bodies have established rules to ensure that research studies are conducted in the most safe and ethical way possible to keep participants protected throughout.

Volunteers are part of the next wave of awesome science and can influence the future of medicine. Advances in research have allowed people to get personalized cancer treatments, be vaccinated for polio, manage their diabetes, and countless other developments — and these breakthroughs wouldn’t be possible without volunteers. People volunteer to:

– Help others by contributing to medical knowledge

-Get more involved in their own health care and learn about their condition

-Get access to new or different treatments

-Join a community and get support

There is no guarantee that a research study will help your condition, but the results will contribute to knowledge that may make a difference in the future care of patients
