Why become a volunteer ?

Becoming a volunteer means that you will participate in clinical research projects and contribute to the development of future therapies. While pre-clinical studies performed in research laboratories can generate a certain amount of information, data validation in humans is essential for the development of new therapeutic products such as vaccines.

Study recruitment procedures usually include a complete medical check-up to make sure you fulfill all the criteria for study inclusion. In this initial screening your general health will be assessed by a professional.

Occasionally, diseases you may be suffering from and be unaware of might be detected precociously.

Our doctors are available to answer questions at any time during the study.

There is often a financial compensation for volunteering in a clinical trial. This is intended to cover your travel costs and the time spent on visits and the total amount depends on the study.
