UCI registry matches patients with doctors trying to find cures for diseases

 

If you could help researchers cure disease, would you?

 

Help accelerate research at UCI

You probably know that medical researchers are working hard to better understand, diagnose, and treat disease and injury. But did you know that the most consistent barrier to improved medical care is slow recruitment to clinical research? According to one recent survey, fewer than 1 out of 4 Americans has participated in a research study. If more people participated in research, medical advances would be made more rapidly. The UCI Consent to Contact (C2C) Registry is a tool to help match interested people in Orange County with studies for which they might qualify, moving research faster toward cures.

How it works

The UCI C2C Registry allows people interested in research to learn about studies going on here in Orange County. People who are interested in research can enroll at one of two levels: 1) You can provide your contact information to receive updates about studies in general; 2) You can provide information about yourself and your health to be matched with studies most appropriate for you. Level 2 represents the optimal way to help researchers find cures faster.

Who can enroll

Any interested adult (age 18 and older) can enroll. Although people who reside in Orange County or the surrounding areas are most likely to be matched to studies, people living in any area are permitted to sign up.

Why it matters 

70% of people say their doctor has never talked to them about research.  The UCI C2C Registry aims to increase community awareness of research opportunities with the goal of improving the rate at which willing participants are enrolled in important medical research studies.  With faster recruitment, we will find cures sooner for our nation’s most pressing health problems.

Who is involved

The UCI C2C Registry is operated by faculty and staff of the UC Irvine Institute for Memory Impairments and Neurological Disorders (UCI MIND).
