Spotlight! | Research Match

"Research Match" was created by the CTSA at Vanderbilt University to match potential participants who are trying to find research studies with studies looking for potential participants (this might mean YOU). The service is free and is not disease-specific. Think of it as an adjunct to your other recruitment strategies ... because there are already 22,000 study-friendly people on the site, all of them hoping that your study is a match made for them in science heaven.



The Network News is a weekly email, detailing HIV/AIDS related events, funding opportunities, and achievements of CFAR members. If you have items that you wish to have included, please send them to us at by Friday of each week. Please put "The Network News" in the subject line.

The Network News is distributed to CFAR members by email every Monday. Except when it isn't.
