Post Your Study and UR Registry

The UR Health Research Website is a public resource for patients and members of the community who are interested in learning more about health research. Visitors to the site can search for studies that are currently enrolling participants and/or can sign up for local or national patient registries to be made aware of future opportunities to participate.

URMC researchers can add their studies to the “Open Studies” listing on the site as well as contact people who are in the URMC Research Participant Registry.

Research Participant Registry

This registry of local research volunteers can be used to identify potential research participants.  Be sure to include the following statement in the recruitment plan section of your protocol: This study will identify potential subjects for recruitment using the UR CTSI Research Participant Registry, STUDY00001978​. Once your protocol is approved you can submit a request online to the URMC Research Participant Registry. A list of people who are potentially eligible for your study will be sent to you along with their contact information.



RSRB and WIRB have stated that IRB approval of listings of clinical studies on the Internet is not required when the information provided is limited to basic study information, such as: the title; purpose of the study; protocol summary; basic eligibility criteria; study site location(s); and how to contact the site for further information. For more information, please visit the FDA website.

Posting Open Studies

Posting your IRB-approved study can help potential research participants find your study. Individual research teams can add their IRB-approved studies to the site, however some groups have a designated staff member who enters studies into the system. To avoid duplication, contact your department administrator before adding your study.  If your study is posted on a record will be started in the Clinical Trials Admin website.  You must finish the record and select that it's ready to be listed on the web before it can be made public.  If you cannot find your study even though it is on, contact
