There are currently over 2,000 clinical trials in process at Yale in virtually every therapeutic category. We need volunteers of all ages and backgrounds in order to help researchers develop new and better treatments.

There are many reasons why people volunteer to take part in a clinical trial:

  • Some volunteers have a condition that is being treated effectively, but they want to help doctors find out more about it in order to develop new treatments.
  • Sometimes volunteers have a friend or loved one with an illness or injury, and they want to participate in a research study as a way to help those who suffer from the same condition.
  • Participating in a clinical trial may offer potential experimental options that might be unavailable otherwise.
  • Many people choose to participate in a study even though it might not help them directly. Knowing that others may benefit from their efforts is a rewarding experience.
