Welcome to INresearch.org! This is a volunteer subject registry developed to reach a large number of Indiana residents interested in participating in research taking place at various institutions affiliated with the IU School of Medicine and the Indiana CTSI. The goal of this registry is to engage the Indiana community in research by providing them with information about ongoing research as well as the need for clinical trial participants. The registry is one of the Indiana CTSI’s mechanisms for assisting researchers in finding volunteers willing to be participants in research.
