NIAID's important clinical trial work cannot be done without the participation of healthy volunteers! Healthy volunteers are people with no known significant health problems.
Help Make a Difference
As a healthy volunteer you will provide researchers with crucial data because your health information can be used as a comparison. In some studies, researchers need to compare healthy volunteers with people who have a specific disease or condition.
Featured Clinical Studies
The Vaccine Research Center is looking for adults 18 years of age and older to participate in trials evaluating vaccine and monoclonal antibodies.
If you are healthy, have some time, and have an interest in helping researchers make discoveries about influenza (the flu), we need you for a screening study.
About 15 million Americans have a food allergy. Because there are no cures or effective prevention or treatment for food allergies, researchers want to learn more about them.

"I connected with the Vaccine Research Center (VRC) to promote HIV vaccine research. Ultimately, I want to do all I can to raise awareness in the community about HIV/AIDS and help those infected with the virus get the support they need. Together, we can stop the spread of this devastating disease."
