Healthy Volunteers

In addition to participating in research studies when you have a particular health condition, you can also participate in many as a healthy volunteer.

Often, healthy volunteers are used as a comparison to a similar person with a condition. This helps scientists understand differences and similarities in people and how diseases affect them differently.

Several such studies are listed below. If you are interested in participating, you may call the Clinical Trials Office or fill out our Volunteer Form and someone will contact you about potential studies of interest.
