Seeking Healthy Volunteers

Healthy volunteers are people with no known significant health problems. They often are given the same tests, procedures, or drugs as patient volunteers so that researchers can compare results and make new discoveries. Healthy volunteers may be compensated for their time and travel. The following are selected studies being conducted at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland.

Screening Healthy Volunteers for Influenza Challenge Studies

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. The screening is used to determine eligibility for future studies that will help researchers learn more about the development and course of the flu virus.


Screening Healthy Volunteers for Studies of Mosquito-Borne Diseases

If you are healthy, have some time, and have an interest in helping researchers make discoveries about mosquito-borne diseases, we need you for a screening study. The screening is used to determine eligibility for future studies that will help researchers learn more about diseases caused by mosquitoes.


Study of Antibiotic-induced Vaginal Yeast Infections in Healthy Women

Vaginal yeast infection is a common cause of vaginal irritation. This study is trying to determine why taking antibiotics sometimes increases a woman’s risk of getting a yeast infection.


Study of Safety and Immunogenicity of HIV Vaccines in Healthy Volunteers

Healthy volunteers are needed for an investigational HIV vaccine study. The study is testing a new vaccine to see if it is safe and effective. It is not possible to get HIV through participating in the study.


Current Vaccine Clinical Studies at the Vaccine Research Center

The Vaccine Research Center (VRC) is currently enrolling volunteers for a range of studies. The VRC is looking for adults (ages 18 to 50) who are willing to volunteer their time and work closely with investigators to evaluate vaccines against diseases such as HIV/AIDS, Ebola, flu, and others.
