Research Match at OHSU

ResearchMatch logo  

The Oregon Clinical and Translational Research Institute (OCTRI) at OHSU has joined with other academic medical centers across the country to encourage individuals to join the ResearchMatch volunteer registry.


As one of only 12 institutions who received the first round of Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA), OHSU is the only institution in the state of Oregon participating in this national campaign.


What is ResearchMatch?

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.  

  • Register for ResearchMatch today! It's quick and easy – it only takes 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Volunteers of any age, race, ethnicity and health status are invited to join.  
  • By registering in ResearchMatch you are not registering to participate in any study. You are registering your interest to be contacted about studies that may be a good ‘match’ for you.
  • The goal of ResearchMatch is to better connect volunteers with potential study opportunities, but we cannot guarantee that you will be 'matched' with a study. We recommend that you consult with your primary care physician in addition to registering with ResearchMatch.
