CCRC Current Studies

Potential study participants talking with nurse

Advancing COVID-19 Clinical Research

Developing effective treatment and interventions for COVID-19 requires clinical studies to test experimental medications. In addition to the current studies actively enrolling participants, the COVID-19 Clinical Research Center anticipates launching several other studies in the coming months.

All studies are led by either a Fred Hutch or University of Washington investigator. Studies may be based on science completed by biotechnology or pharmaceutical companies. Study sponsors cover all clinical trial costs and under no circumstances will a participant’s insurance be charged for any service. The CCRC is not a hospital or clinic and will only have participation from volunteers that fit the study criteria and fully consent to participation.

Is it Safe?

Your Health is Our Priority

The COVID-19 Clinical Research Center has been designed with safety top of mind with separate entrances and exits for study volunteers, optimized medical-grade air flow, private clinic rooms, extensive cleaning & disinfecting protocols and more. If you are chosen to join a study, your health will be closely monitored and care adjusted if our team determines that it is in your best interest. You may also end the study at any time without having to provide a reason.

Who Can Participate?

Qualifying for Our Studies

Our studies are inclusive of adult participants of all races, ethnicities, and backgrounds to help Researchers understand the best treatment medicines and methods across diverse populations. The facility plans to support COVID-positive study participants as well as vaccine trial participants. Each study has different criteria for participation. Review each study listed below for more information on the eligibility criteria.

What are my rights?

About Informed Consent

Before you participate in a study, our researchers will make sure you understand the details of the study and all of the possible known benefits, risks and alternatives to the trial in a process known as informed consent. This time will help you learn the facts about the study before deciding to take part in the trial. Informed consent is not a contract and you always have a right to ask our team questions or end your involvement at any time during the trial.
