ResearchMatch is a free and secure online recruitment tool that helps match willing volunteers with eligible studies at institutions across the country.
ResearchMatch is not just one institution, one partner, or one study. Currently, the ResearchMatch network includes 179 institutions and 62 partner organizations. The platform is hosted at Vanderbilt University, but Institutional
Liaison(s) exist at each participating site in order to provide local oversight of ResearchMatch usage.
Any potential participant living in the United States, including Puerto Rico, can join ResearchMatch. People of all ages and backgrounds are welcome. A parent, legal guardian, or caretaker can register a child under 18, or register
an adult that may not be able to join on their own.

After you have been granted recruitment access by your Institutional Liaison, you will be able to search for appropriate matches amongst the non-identifiable ResearchMatch Volunteer profiles in the system.
You will enter your study’s criteria in the ResearchMatch Search Builder which will yield a list of these potential matches.
ResearchMatch study home pages feature all those volunteers who say yes and show aggregate figures/charts demonstrating the response rate to your initial recruitment message.
With ResearchMatch, you will have access to thousands of volunteers who may match with your studies.
