Research Participant Outreach Corner

The Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) at WMed is committed to the protection of the rights and welfare of individuals who volunteer for research. Volunteers are also known as "subjects" or "participants." The document below includes basic information about research and the rights of research participants.

The information is intended to help you make informed choices if someone from WMed asks you to participate in research; you see or hear advertisements for WMed research and think about volunteering; you want to participate in research, but you do not know where to start, or you are seeking research opportunities for a specific disease/condition.
