Research Match for Recruitment
ResearchMatch is a free participant recruitment and feasibility analysis tool available to OHSU researchers. The national volunteer registry brings together researchers and willing volunteers who want to get involved in research studies. Using a secure, web-based approach, ResearchMatch addresses participant recruitment by allowing researchers to search the registry and, with IRB approval, contact volunteers who may be a good 'match' for their study.
ResearchMatch is a national project developed by institutions affiliated with the Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) and facilitated at OHSU by OCTRI.
ResearchMatch has a simple goal – to bring together two groups of people who are looking for one another: (1) people who are trying to find research studies, and (2) researchers who are looking for people to participate in their studies. It is a free and secure registry that has been developed by major academic institutions across the country who want to involve you in the mission of helping today's studies make a real difference for everyone's health in the future.
