Clinical Trials

Would you like to participate in a study?

Advancing our understanding of how the human body works when it is healthy and developing new, more effective, and selective therapeutic agents require clinical research on human beings. If you are interested in registering to be contacted when we have a study relevant to your age, gender, family history, or disease history, please contact the Clinical & Translational Research Center for more information and, if you choose, to register as a volunteer. Call 615.327.6820 or email


The CTRC can also help you sign up on, a nationwide registry that matches volunteers with scientific studies. Unfortunately, many studies end prematurely, simply because there are not enough participants who qualify and the scientist conducting the study is unable to locate new participants. Member institutions and their scientists can now look to the registry for a ready source of potential volunteers.

If you or someone you know is interested in participating in a study,  please contact Meharry’s Participant and Clinical Interactions Resources at 615.327.5725.

Would You Like to Conduct a Trial?

The expertise and expense of conducting a clinical trial are beyond the scope of most researchers’ grants. Meharry’s CTRC offers researchers the infrastructure they need for this function.
