UMB Researchers Can Use ResearchMatch to Find Volunteers

Clinical and translational research cannot occur without volunteers, and connecting volunteers with researchers is often the most limiting factor for moving research discoveries to the community.

UMB has joined ResearchMatch, a network of more than 150 institutions across the United States dedicated to advancing discovery and health for communities now and for future generations.

More than 7,000 volunteers within a 50-mile radius of UMB are¬†registered in ResearchMatch, so UMB researchers now have the opportunity to conduct feasibility searches of the network’s database before listing it as a recruitment strategy in their Institutional Review Board (IRB) application.

You can register for a ResearchMatch webinar to learn more about using this powerful tool. Here are the webinar dates for the next four months (all times 3 p.m. to 4 p.m.):

  • Thursday, July 12
  • Thursday, Aug. 9
  • Thursday, Sept. 13
  • Thursday, Oct. 11
