Connecting UD researchers with study participants
Welcome! The Center for Human Research Coordination helps recruit, screen and register research participants for studies underway across the University of Delaware. We also support UD researchers with secure data management of their studies involving human subjects.
On our site, visitors can explore all UD studies currently seeking participants, and UD researchers and collaborators can access the services and training we offer to their teams.
Working with an expert team
As a leading research university — in the top 3% nationally, the University of Delaware conducts hundreds of studies involving public participants each year, on topics ranging from stroke to how children learn vocabulary. The Center for Human Research Coordination staff has a wealth of experience working with research participants, as well as with UD researchers seeking expert training in human subjects data management.

What we do
CHRC helps guide faculty and their research teams with various tools to help facilitate recruitment for individual studies and disease/injury registries.
We coordinate screening, scheduling, transportation and more for research participants via phone, email, text or in-person.
CHRC helps develop data capture projects, and connect research teams with databases that use a secure repository that is 21 CFR Part 11, FISMA, HIPAA, and GDPR compliant.
CHRC helps support registries of human participants for researchers to draw from for screening or potential recruitment, allowing similar studies to focus on data collection and analysis.
