Information for Research Participants

The MRCT Center and Harvard Catalyst have collaborated on a series of COVID-19 clinical research flyers/handouts that can be included as general information, largely to prepare potential participants in advance of recruitment and consent for COVID-19 research. These introductory one-pagers are focused on different potential audiences including patients, friends/family members, health proxies, parents/guardians, and children.

Learning about research participation can be challenging.  The Office of Regulatory Affairs and Research Compliance developed a brochure entitled Should I Take Part in Research and compiled the below informational materials to help you make the best decisions for you and your loved ones who may be thinking about participating in research.
