Clinical Trials and Research Opportunities
Finding Clinical Trials
The National Cancer Institute, through the National Institutes of Health, has a clinical trial search engine. It is user friendly, but we are glad to assist you in your search.
Research Opportunities at The Gathering Place
Periodically The Gathering Place is contacted by a university or hospital seeking help to recruit individuals for a research opportunity. We have never and will never sell or give away our database of participants. We agree to pass along opportunities that meet our criteria (see paragraph below) to you via this website. Below are links to research projects that you may follow up on if you are interested. We do not endorse or recommend them, just bring them to your attention.Posting a Research Opportunity at The Gathering Place
The Education Center at The Gathering Place has boards outside of our libraries and this webpage where we may post information from outside researchers to inform participants at The Gathering Place about their study and the opportunity to participate. Prior to posting, the researcher will need to submit to Beth Bennett, Director of Exercise, Nutrition and Research The Gathering Place, a copy of the research proposal or a copy of the IRB approval. When there are questions about proposals from outside researchers, they will be forwarded to the Research Committee for review. We ask that you be clear in your request when to remove the flyer as well. Email Beth with any questions at Bennett@touchedbycancer.org
