WHAT IS THE RESEARCH PARTICIPANT REGISTRY?
The Research Participant Registry is a database that is made up of people who have volunteered to consider participation in research studies for themselves or their children. Its goal is to bring the medical research advances to those who can benefit from them more directly and quickly. Although the Research Participant Registry is a joint effort between the University of Pittsburgh and UPMC, neither you nor your child need be a patient in the UPMC health care system to sign up for the Registry. To date, the Registry has had more than 95,800 people sign up to hear more about research and health topics.
