The Research Participant Registry connects community members and UPMC patients of all ages with researchers at the University of Pittsburgh and UPMC. Signing yourself and/or your children up for the Registry:
  • allows the Registry Office staff to send you information about research studies that might interest you or your children
  • gives you a chance to learn more about research studies and decide if you want to join, or if you want to allow your children to join
  • connects you with a central Screening Office to answer your questions about research and currently recruiting studies

How can I participate or sign up my child(ren) to participate?

Community members of all ages can join (parents must sign up their children under the age of 18). Healthy volunteers and individuals with medical conditions are needed. There are many ways to join the Registry: online, at your UPMC doctor’s office, at your children’s UPMC/CHP doctor’s office, through UPMC HealthTrak, or at select community events (look for a table with friendly CTSI staff members).

Online Registration

The online registration process takes just a few minutes to complete. You will be asked to provide information including your name and mailing address (or your child’s name and mailing address), and will be asked to select health topics of your choice from a list. The Registry Office will use this information to notify you of current studies for you, or for your child(ren).
