Registry to bring together research studies and participants

WE-Spark Health Institute has launched a new research registry that brings research studies and participants together in a central location. Researchers can post their studies, and the public can learn about local health projects and choose to participate.

The institute’s executive director, biomedical science professor Lisa Porter, notes that local researchers conduct studies and clinical trials in a range of disciplines — from helping to predict organizational resilience and employee engagement to understanding the effects of a pandemic on the mental health of children.

“Whether registering a study, or participating in one, everyone can play a role in informing future health practices and decisions that will have a positive impact on our local community and around the world,” she says.
