Find a study that's right for you

Make A Difference. Get Involved.

Participating in research is one of the most powerful things you can do to be part of tomorrow's health care breakthroughs. Penn State is always looking for people who are willing to participate in studies, so that our researchers can better understand how to diagnose, treat, and prevent diseases and conditions.

Use this Studyfinder website to quickly and easily identify studies across Penn State that need volunteers. Every study is different - some are looking for people with a specific condition, while others need healthy volunteers (read more about that here). That's why we've created search filters to help you find the study that's right for you. You can also filter by age, and search by keyword to find studies focused on specific conditions and diseases. Typing in a location, such as State College or Hershey, will also help you filter studies of interest.

You can also get answers to your questions about clinical research here.

By getting involved with research, you can help transform the lives of millions.
