More Information About Participating in a Research Study:

When you participate in a clinical research study, you become an agent of change. Research participants are critical in helping physicians and other researchers develop and test better ways to diagnose and treat patients. Your participation helps move science forward, helping to develop new therapies for chronically and critically ill patients. You can read more about how a covid-19 vaccine study would work in this article by the Cincinnati Business Courier.

Additionally, as a participant in a study, you may be eligible to receive compensation for time and travel.

Frequently Asked Questions About COVID-19 Vaccine Trials:

  • If I participate in a vaccine study does that mean I will be injected with the virus
    • No - You will not be infected with a virus during a vaccine research study. Vaccine research studies work by introducing man-made genes into your body, which allow your body’s own cells to make proteins similar to those in the virus. The presence of these proteins causes your body to develop antibodies in response, which then allow your body to recognize and attack the viruses proteins if they become introduced into your body upon exposure to the virus.
  • Do I need to have my own health insurance?
    • Participants in our research studies do not need to have health insurance. All study-related care, visits, and medications are provided at no cost.
  • In order to participate in a COVID-19 vaccine study do I need to have previously tested positive for the virus?
    • Every research study has different criteria for participants. Things such as age, gender, and medical history may impact who can participate in a particular research study. The best way to find out if you qualify for one of our studies is to fill out the form above or call us at (513) 721-3868.
  • Do I have to be showing COVID-19 symptoms in order to participate in a COVID-19 vaccine study?
    • You do not need to show COVID-19 symptoms in order to participate in a COVID-19 vaccine study. In fact, we ask any participants who may be experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or have been exposed to COVID-19 to refrain from visiting our research center and notify our staff immediately.
  • Are there restrictions to participating in a vaccine study?
    • Anyone who meets the requirements for the research study is able to participate.

What happens after I fill out the form?

Once you let us know you or someone you care for are interested in becoming a part of a clinical research study, a member of our team will be in touch soon. That team member will ask you for some additional information to help us place you in the correct study.

After that, all you have to do is wait! We will email or call you when we have a study that you may qualify to participate in. Keep in mind that every study is different because each study is researching a different indication. So, just because we call you may not mean you qualify to enroll in that study. However, we always have more studies rolling in, so there will always be more opportunities for you to help.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call us at (513) 721-3868. We look forward to hearing from you!
