  • UMHealthResearch.org (UMHR) is designed to go above and beyond a typical participant recruitment platform because it allows for study use both ways: volunteers (both healthy and with specific medical conditions) and researchers can search for studies and find matches based on their interests and needs. This unique participant recruitment site has received national recognition and attention across the Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) consortium. UMHealthResearch is now being deployed across the country at half a dozen other CTSA programs in Illinois and Florida, with more expressing interest as the word spreads about its unique design and interface.
