CTSI National Registry:
The Boston University/Boston Medical Center CTSI is proudly participating in the new national ResearchMatch.org initiative. ResearchMatch.org is a national web-based recruitment registry that will help ‘match’ researchers with willing volunteers all over the country who may wish to participate in research studies. This complementary recruitment tool, developed through the collaborative spirit of the CTSI Consortium, will be freely available to all researchers at Boston University.
Volunteer registration is underway, with the primary aim to populate the CTSI national registry before releasing this new recruitment tool to researchers. Volunteers across the country are being asked to join and register at ResearchMatch.org. If you are a researcher who may be interested in using this resource once it is available, please submit your request via the ResearchMatch Researcher Interest Form.
If you should have any specific questions regarding Boston University’s involvement in Researchmatch.org, you may contact the BU Institutional Liaison, Farrah Belizaire by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at: 617-638-8862
