Pittsburgh Vaccine Clinical Trial Unit Registry

Protocol Description

A research registry is a collection of individuals interested in being told of research studies of which they might like to take part. Our registry will focus on vaccine trials that may be of interest to you in the Pittsburgh region. Once we have identified a vaccine trial, we will reach back out to see if you would like to learn more about participation. In order to join the registry, we will need to collect some basic information about you and review your current medical conditions. We may ask you to also give a blood sample to document you have not had the specific disease against which the vaccine would be tested, if your medical records do not show recent results.


There is no direct benefit to participating in this registry study. Participants will be referred to any vaccine clinical trials that become available that they may be interested in enrolling.
