Intrigued by the prospect of participating in a clinical research study, but still on the fence? You are not alone! We understand that participating in clinical research studies can be intimidating. Amazing and world-changing medical discoveries are not possible without volunteers. Research positively impacts the lives of people every day, but research needs you. Luckily, study participation offers many benefits to you, as well as the broader population.

Did you know? In 2017, there were over 234,000 registered clinical studies worldwide! And 2017 exceeded that number. There have been over 270,000 registered studies globally, in just the first half of 2018!*

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


Discovery Of New Treatment Options

You know what it’s like to struggle with acne breakouts or deal with the itchy, flaky skin that comes from eczema flare-ups. Through study participation, you’ll be helping yourself and others find relief. Study results could improve treatment options in the future, helping you and others with similar medical conditions.




Information Sharing Leads to Better Care Worldwide


Information Sharing

Information from the study is shared around the world, allowing doctors and pharmaceutical researchers to learn more about certain conditions to provide better care and more effective treatments.




Improve your Skin and Get Relief


Condition Improvement/Relief

There is the possibility that the treatment provided during the study may be successful at improving your condition and 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.

The best part? Health insurance is not necessary to participate.




See Board-Certified Dermatologists and Get Peace of Mind


Peace Of Mind

When you enroll in a study at DermResearch, you’ll see one of our board-certified dermatologists every time you come in for a clinic visit.

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.
