Have you ever wondered about the development of medications or medical treatments that could one day improve the health and quality of life of millions of people?
Clinical trials are a fundamental part of this process. Volunteer participation in paid clinical trials is essential for the development and approval of new medications and medical treatments.
Clinical Research of South Florida is most grateful to our volunteers. We value their safety, comfort and well being above all else.
- Free access to new investigational treatments and/or medications.
- Free medical care by medical doctors during the trial.
- You may receive compensation for time and travel.
So, you’re considering becoming a volunteer. If you are visiting this website, it’s likely that you already have an interest in volunteering. Maybe someone who has been a volunteer in the past has encouraged you to be a paid volunteer. Or perhaps you have a health problem that’s related to one of the studies currently being conducted at Clinical Research of South Florida. There are probably as many reasons to volunteer as there are volunteers for our medical research studies. We welcome your interest and we encourage you to apply to become a paid volunteer.
Did you know that 95% of volunteers would consider participating in another clinical research trial.
Volunteers are an integral part of the clinical research process. People with a particular disease as well as healthy people both can play a role in contributing to medical advances. Without paid volunteers, Medical Research Studies simply would not be possible.
The development of an innovative new treatment is often a lengthy and costly process – all treatments will have previously undergone rigorous testing in the laboratory before progressing onto testing in humans. A clinical trial is the term used to describe the testing of a new treatment or medical device to evaluate whether the drug or device is effective and safe for people to use. Other terms often used to describe clinical trials are drug studies, drug research or medical research. Clinical trials are carried out under the strict supervision of fully qualified doctors, nurses and other health professionals. An Independent Review Board (IRB) must first approve all medical research trials. The main concern of IRB’s is safeguarding the interests of participants.
All CRSF clinical studies are done in accordance with ICH Clinical Practice (GCP) , which is an international ethical and scientific quality standard for the conduct of trials.
By becoming a clinical research volunteer, you are not only helping to benefit the wider community through the development of better medicines, you’ll also be paid for your time and any inconvenience.
