About the Boston University ReSPECT Registry
The ReSPECT Registry is a way for people to find out about research studies at Boston University/Boston Medical Center (BU/BMC) that are looking for research volunteers. The registry assists people in finding those studies that might be of interest to them to participate in.
Research volunteers are very important to the many medical discoveries that continue to make our lives better. These discoveries continue to teach us how to better treat diseases, and could not have happened without research volunteers.
