Welcome to UMClinicalStudies.org

We are delighted you are visiting. Thank you for your interest in making a valued contribution to clinical and health research at the University of Michigan. Your participation is needed today for better medicine tomorrow.

Whether you are a healthy volunteer or someone with an existing medical condition interested in participating in health research studies, we are eager to find the right study match for YOU. Everyone is welcome to search for studies that may meet a particular interest or medical need.  Health research discoveries are only possible when many diverse volunteers make a commitment to participate.

If you are a researcher or study team coordinator, UMClinicalStudies can provide you with the tools to identify, recruit, and retain interested study participants. 

Our goal is to facilitate communication between health researchers and volunteers so they can find one another and establish a partnership built on trust and mutual respect. We hope to encourage and promote collaborations in which all are valued members of the health research team.

We are always interested in your feedback – please contact us at umclinicalstudies@umich.edu.

1955 – Epidemiologist Thomas Francis, Jr., MD (School of Public Health) announces on April 12 that the Salk polio vaccine is “safe, effective, and potent”.  He designed and conducted the largest clinical study ever undertaken using human subjects, involving 1.8 million children at 15,000 schools in 44 states and areas of Canada and Finland.
What is clinical health research?
1995 – Gary Nabel, MD, PhD (Department of Internal Medicine) and colleagues conduct the world’s first human gene therapy protocol for AIDS. The pilot study demonstrates for the first time that antiviral gene therapy can prolong T-cell survival in HIV-infected patients.
