Research Participation

We are always looking for people – both with and without specific diseases – to take part in research studies that will help advance scientific knowledge and speed the development of new therapies for the prevention, treatment and cure of all diseases. 

If you are interested in becoming a research study participant, please click here. A GHUCCTS recruitment representative will contact you to provide information about our research studies in your disease area and details about volunteering.

People who would like to be involved in research studies can also register through any of the listed registries:


ResearchMatch is a national volunteer research registry that brings together researchers and willing volunteers who wish to become involved in research studies. It provides a secure, web-based approach for you to indicate your interest in potentially participating in clinical research studies.

Volunteers of any age, race, ethnicity, and health status can register with ResearchMatch.  You begin by submitting basic demographic and health status information.  After you have registered, researchers with matching research studies will send you information about their studies.  All information is sent through ResearchMatch, so individual researchers will not have your direct contact information.

If you are interested in hearing more about a particular study, you can indicate your continued interest on the ResearchMatch website, and at that point your contact information will become available to the researchers of that study so that they can provide you with more information.  If the study does not interest you, then you do nothing and your contact information will not be disclosed to the researchers.  However, you will still receive information about other or future studies until you withdraw your registration from ResearchMatch.

Georgetown Research Volunteer Program

As population changes under the influence of powerful engines such as media, economy, public policy, and medical advances, so does our potential to learn.  The Georgetown Research Volunteer Program (GRVP) aims to examine how people of all ages learn across different environments with the help of volunteers like you from the community who can participate in a number of studies.  Please refer to the summaries of current studies for more information or to join the registry at this link:
