The Research Studies That Need You and How To Find Them
I work at teaching hospital/research university so people ask me all the time “are there any studies at UAB I can be in?” And I never know the answer because there are too many studies going on for me to keep up with. This is a scenario I am sure happens all over the country. Now my university – the University of Alabama at Birmingham – has joined with 51 other institutions across the country to take part in the NIH’s “Research Match”. All you have to do is visit: http://www.researchmatch.org/ and register on their site. They’ll connect you with researchers in your area whose studies you may be want to join. Talk about a win/win that makes good sense!
