Volunteer Studies

Volunteer Studies

Volunteer participation in clinical trials and observational studies is vital to disease research. No matter how promising a new drug, vaccine or procedure looks when tested in the laboratory or on animals, it cannot be approved for general use in humans until it has been carefully evaluated through several phases of clinical study that include volunteer participants. Observational studies are also crucial to determining cause and effect in human health, including how behavior, lifestyle, genetic factors and other traits may help prevent disease or contribute to disease risk. Some of our studies seek healthy participants for prevention research that may involve dietary changes, vitamin supplementation, increased physical activity or adoption of other health-promoting behaviors.

The Air Study

Fred Hutch is recruiting individuals to participate in a study to learn about how to reduce personal exposure to air pollution, a known risk factor for lung cancer. We hope to use the information that we gather to develop larger studies to increase knowledge and awareness of the harmful health effects of air pollution.
