We are building a resource for you, based on what you tell us you want

The following opportunities enable you to engage with us, and help shape what Research4Me does to support you in learning about and getting involved in clinical trials.

Our Surveys

We don't know enough about your use of technology and clinical trial awareness and experience, to know where there is opportunity to better support you.

Tell us via the appropriate survey below a little more about you. The survey will take 10-20mins depending on the detail you provide, and can be done anonymously. In recognition of your donation of time, we will donate $5 for the first 100 surveys completed to one of the following Australian organisations supporting medical research:

The Unicorn Foundation (seeking a cure for neuroendocrine tumours)

The Sanfilippo Children's Foundation (seeking a cure for children with the rare and fatal genetic condition Sanfilippo Syndrome)

Love Your Sister (a village supporting cancer research)

#WhyClinicalTrialsMatter - a campaign to share stories about clinical trials

Before Research4Me was born, our founder launched the #WhyClinicalTrialsMatter hashtag as a way of collating resources and stories about clinical trials. It has an unbranded website, so anyone is free to use the hashtag without fear of promoting an organisation.  We continue to support this campaign and website, and facilitate the opportunity for people to share their stories of clinical trial involvement on its blog.

Please use the hashtag to share examples you see of why clinical trials matter, and contact us if you would like to tell your story on its blog.
