The UAMS Translational Research Institute’s volunteer registry provides researchers with access to more than 4,000 potential research participants located primarily in Arkansas. The registry database is available to all UAMS faculty, including those at Arkansas Children’s Hospital and its Research Institute and the Central Arkansas Veterans Healthcare System. The registry includes demographic data, general disease categories and a “Healthy Volunteer” option the registrants have selected as their interest areas for future studies.

Researchers interested in utilizing the registry may submit a request through the TRI Services Portal at the Request Services button on this page.
