Research Participant Recruitment & Retention Support

The Participant Recruitment & Retention Program of the Johns Hopkins Institute for Clinical and Translational Research, established in 2007, offers investigators and research teams training, consultations and a toolkit of evidence-based, field-tested recruitment practices. Services have been developed and offered in collaboration with experts in information technology, ethics, and patient and community-engagement. Each year, workshops, hands on seminars, and customized support are provided to help researchers achieve their recruitment goals.

Since its formation, over 1000 investigators and research teams have received recruitment training and support. This includes a broad range of federally funded, multi-site clinical trials and research programs funded by patient and community organizations.
