Mission Statement

Founded in 2003, The Center for Information and Study on Clinical Research Participation (CISCRP) is a first-of-its-kind nonprofit organization dedicated to educating and informing the public, patients, medical/research communities, the media, and policy makers about clinical research participation and the role that each party plays as a participant in the process. CISCRP’s staff and board of advisors have highly diverse backgrounds - from the clinical research, healthcare and advocacy communities. CISCRP’s funding comes from a wide variety of sources including individual donors, government and research institutions, foundations and corporations.


CISCRP provides a wealth of information on how to become an informed clinical research participant. We strive to help you locate ongoing clinical trials by conducting a free custom search.

Our Medical Heroes Newsletter is designed to to educate and help those interested in clinical research understand the process and honors them as medical heroes. CISCRP invotes those who have participated in clinical research to join our Medical Heroes Community.

CISCRP has numerous resources to help clients and patients understand clinical research.

These include:

  • The Participant (newsletter)
  • Brochures
  • DVDs
  • Books
  • Posters

AWARE for All is an educational program sponsored by CISCRP, that is free and open to the public for the purpose of providing education to help people make informed decisions about clinical research participation. AWARE includes thank you receptions for local clinical research participants, workshops, health screenings and exhibits.At the AWARE program participants should:

  • Learn what clinical trials are and how they work
  • Learn why society needs clinical research
  • Understand the safety, benefits and risks of clinical research;
  • Learn questions to ask your doctor or healthcare provider before participating in clinical research.

This year AWARE for All is scheduled for Boston, Raleigh/Durham, Chicago and Philadelphia. It is a 3-6 month grassroots campaign that culminates in a half day event- "Clinical Research Education Day." It is composed of seminars, workshops, free health screenings and an information alley.

You may join our Circle of Supporters, support Medical Heroes or AWARE for All in your community. Professionals may also contact CISCRP and offer to be a speaker on our behalf.
