The goal of The ReSPECT Registry is to support the community in learning about clinical research and finding opportunities to participate in research studies.

Boston University invites you to join The ReSPECT Registry!

The ReSPECT Registry is a way for people to find out about research studies at Boston University/Boston Medical Center (BU/BMC) that are looking for research volunteers. The registry assists people in finding those studies that might be of interest to them to participate in.

Research volunteers are very important to the many medical discoveries that continue to make our lives better. These discoveries continue to teach us how to better treat diseases, and could not have happened without research volunteers.

Some examples of clinical research discoveries are:

  • Vaccines
  • New treatments for diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and heart disease
  • Better ways to exercise
  • MRIs, CT Scans, X-ray machines, and diagnostic tests
  • Improved medical procedures
  • Improved ways to diagnose conditions or diseases
