Get Involved

There are several ways that individuals can express interest in clinical research:

Register for a Study

  • Sign up with TNN Match. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to change how we live, Northwestern has partnered with eight other top universities and hospitals on a matchmaking platform for clinical research. The New Normal (TNN) movement is meant to increase awareness of health research and give communities access to information about health research opportunities. TNN Match is a matchmaking portal that even healthy adults can use. Now, it's your chance to take part in changing the world!
  • Sign up with ResearchMatch. Researchers need your help! Health research changes lives every day, but many studies end early because there are not enough volunteers. ResearchMatch can help by matching you with research studies across the nation. Researchers need both healthy people and people with all types of conditions.
