Volunteer to Participate in a Research Study
Across the entities of the Loma Linda University Health, researchers conduct numerous clinical trials and human studies to work toward finding cures and transforming lives through clinical research. Clinical studies encompass a wide variety of approaches. Some studies investigate the particular use of a drug or device, while others may observe lifestyle and/or behavioral changes.
Every study is reviewed by the Institutional Review Board (IRB) to ensure that all federal, state, and institutional policies are adhered to. The IRB review works to ensure that all study participants are treated in an ethical manner. Studies posted to this website have been approved by the IRB.
