Join A Study
Participating in a clinical trial is rewarding, but finding the right studies can be challenging.
Great Lakes Clinical Trials makes it easy for you to step into the role of helping advance medical science.
We match you with studies that are right for you and your schedule. We answer your questions and let you know exactly what to expect.
Your Study Experience
We strive to give you the best possible study experience from start to finish!
Depending on what study you are interested in, your first visit may be a screening or a prescreening. No need to worry, we’ll go over all of that with you beforehand.
Typically, a doctor has scheduled their time to see you for your visit. Please call us at (773) 275-3500 if you need to reschedule.
Study participation is always voluntary. We’ll thoroughly inform you of study timelines, procedures, and details.
Most studies involve a screening visit to determine if you will qualify to continue in the study.
Some studies require you to keep a daily diary, take medication, or complete other self-monitored activities. Please know that we depend on you to do this during the study.

If You Don’t Qualify
