Human subject research is systematic, scientific investigation that can be either interventional (a "trial") or observational (no "test article") and involves human beings as research subjects. Human subject research can be either medical (clinical) research or non-medical (e.g., social science) research.
Our facilities ask volunteer blood donors and the general public if they would like to participate in research studies. Persons that indicate availability are then targeted for specific health history screening and/or medical evaluations to identify disease states and targets that a researcher may need to accomplish a specific research objective. This data is used to create a biological profile for the individual. The individual is provided on-line access to their profile and can update and edit it independently. Our facilities provide a vast and diverse network of individuals that are willing participants in minimally invasive studies. Additionally, through routine mass screening and testing of plasma samples, our facilities have an inventory of plasma positive for specific disease targets that can be provided as de-identified/non-linked samples for researchOur facilities also have the ability to contact these willing participants both now and in the future. Therefore, using specific research objectives we can poll or interview participants to identify and select subjects that represent a specific demographic of the population and/or markers required to evaluate disease agents. Each questionnaire can be tailored to best identify the population of subjects needed.
