Become a Healthy Volunteer

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.

"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."
