ResearchMatch for Researchers

National Research Recruitment Registry

  • ResearchMatch is a national volunteer research registry that brings together researchers and willing volunteers who wish to get involved in research studies. This national registry developed by institutions affiliated with the Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA), provides a secure, web-based approach to address a key barrier to advancing research: participant recruitment.
  • ResearchMatch has now been launched and the Cleveland CTSA is partaking in the national campaign to encourage individuals to join this volunteer registry if they would like to do so.
