How to Participate in Research
Register as a Research Participant at UTSW
UT Southwestern offers an opportunity for patients to enroll in our Research Participant Registry. A registry is a list of volunteers (healthy or with a particular condition) who are UT Southwestern patients. People who participate in the registry are interested in learning more about volunteering for clinical research studies. These studies might be clinical trials to test new medicines or devices, or research that use interviews or surveys to better understand health and behavior.
Join the Community Research Registry
The Community Research Registry (CRR) serves as a link between individuals who are interested in participating in research and investigators who want to recruit a diverse sample of study participants. All adults age 18+ are invited to participate in the Health Topics Survey. As studies become available, registry members are recruited. To join the Registry, please fill out our Health Topics Survey.
Join a National Registry
ResearchMatch is a national registry that has been developed by major academic institutions across the country who want to involve you in the mission of helping today's studies make a real difference for everyone's health in the future.
