Medical discoveries are not possible without volunteers. Research positively impacts the lives of people every day, but research needs YOU. Too many studies end early because there aren’t enough volunteers. Participating in a research study offers many benefits to you, as well as the broader population.
Chances are you can find a study that interests you and fits your particular set of needs.
Did you know? In 2016, there were over 234,000 registered clinical studies worldwide! And 2017 is set to far exceed that number, with over 240,000 registered studies in the first four months of the year.*
Here are 5 ways that you can make an impact in medical research and improve your own life, as well as the lives of others.
Discovery Of New Treatment Options
Study results could improve treatment options in the future, helping you and others with similar medical conditions.
Information Sharing, Leading to Better Care Worldwide
Information from the study is shared around the world, allowing doctors to learn more about certain conditions in order to provide better care.
Condition Improvement & Relief
There is the possibility that the treatment provided during the study may be successful at improving your condition and/or providing relief. At DermResearch, patients that may not otherwise have access to dermatology treatments can have their skin condition assessed by a board-certified dermatologist.
Peace Of Mind
Even if a study does not lead to better treatment options the results can confirm that doctors are already doing what is best, giving you peace of mind that you are receiving the best care available.
Earn Extra Money
Low on spending money? Joining a study can help you put some extra cash in your pocket! Most research centers offer compensation for time and travel, including DermResearch.
