Thank you for your interest in clinical trial participation at the Center for Vaccine Development and Global Health!
Clinical trials look at new ways to prevent, detect, or treat disease. Treatments might be new drugs or new combinations of drugs or new ways to use existing treatments. Each of our clinical trials are different. Clinical trials help determine if a new test or treatment works and is safe. Clinical trials can also look at other aspects of care, such as improving the quality of life for people with chronic illnesses.
People participate in clinical trials for a variety of reasons. Healthy volunteers say they participate to help others and to contribute to moving science forward. Participants with an illness or disease also participate to help others, but also to possibly receive the newest treatment and to have the additional care and attention from the clinical trial staff.
Clinical trials offer hope for many people and an opportunity to help researchers find better treatments for others in the future.
Please complete this contact form to be added to our list of potential participants. We look forward to speaking with you about participation in a trial at the Center for Vaccine Development at the University of Maryland, Baltimore.
Are you interested in COVID-19 vaccine studies for your child or children? We have upcoming studies for children and adolescents in both Baltimore and Frederick, MD. Research studies have differing requirements for participation. Please fill out this form so that we can contact you when an applicable study is available.
Volunteers needed for COVID-19 Mix and Match Booster study.
When people get sick with the virus that causes COVID-19, they may experience symptoms of high fever, cough, shortness of breath and flu-like symptoms. Multiple vaccines have been developed against this virus.
As part of the study, we will mix and match different vaccines as a booster dose and study the safety and the immune response.
This study will require approximately 14-15 clinic visits over a 12-27-month time span, to follow the safety and the immune response to the vaccine and/or boosters. Eligible participants will be compensated for completing all the study visits and procedures.
Researchers at the University of Maryland School of Medicine are partnering with the public to better understand the spread of COVID-19. Study participants will complete short online questionnaires over several months about possible exposures to COVID-19, symptoms, and health care visits.
Ready to get started?
The current research study will require two clinic visits per year for up to seven years, and eligible participants will be compensated up to $1050 over the course of the study.
Participants will include:
