Recruitment of volunteers is key to a successful research study but is often difficult.
ResearchMatch is a free and secure online national volunteer recruitment registry, developed by Vanderbilt University and hosted by MSU CTSI and over 210 other institutions, designed to connect people who want to participate in studies with researchers seeking study volunteers.
ResearchMatch serves several functions:
Study feasibility: Viewing of aggregate data to determine cohort size for study planning purposes
Participant recruitment: Offering study-specific information to participants who then may choose to be contacted for enrollment
