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.

The UMClinicalStudies Team

2012 – Anna Lok, MD (Department of Internal Medicine) leads a national team to a “watershed moment” discovery in hepatitis C treatment: two investigational drugs, antivirals daclatasvir and asunaprevir, can successfully clear the hepatitis C virus in individuals infected with the virus.
What is clinical health research?
1975 – Robert Bartlett, MD developed the ECMO (extracorporeal membrane oxygenation) and treated the first infant.

“It’s easy to look back and think that there was a brilliant plan. But it wasn’t that at all — we started out to solve a problem, and then another, and then another. It was just persistence, sticking with a problem until it was solved, with a big team of people, with some phenomenal researchers, trying to keep people alive who were going to die.”
