Volunteers from researchmatch.

What is ResearchMatch?

ResearchMatch is a national volunteer research registry that brings together researchers and willing volunteers who wish to get involved in research studies. It provides a secure, web-based approach to recruiting research participants and thus addresses a key barrier to advancing research. It was developed by institutions affiliated with the Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA).

ResearchMatch is a participant recruitment and feasibility analysis tool that is currently available to Georgetown University researchers:

  • Feasibility Access: Researchers are able to view aggregate information for grant-writing purposes or hypothesis generation
  • Recruitment Access: IRB-approved protocol is required and it allows the researcher to:
    • Search the ‘anonymous’ registry for potential maches to his/her study
    • Send initial recrutiment message to those potentially matching volunteers
