Clinical Research Opportunities
Importance of Clinical Research Studies:
Clinical Research studies are important for discovering new treatments for diseases, as well as new ways to detect, diagnose, and reduce the chance of developing the disease. Clinical Research studies can show researchers what does and doesn’t work in humans that cannot be learned in the laboratory or in animals. Ultimately, the goal is to increase medical knowledge and improve patient care.
Get involved with Clinical Research studies today:
Groundbreaking scientific advances in the past were only possible because of the participation of clinical research volunteers and their integral role. People with a particular disease as well as healthy people both can play a role in contributing to medical advances. Without volunteers, clinical research studies simply would not be possible.
There are different types of clinical research that can be conducted, depending on what a team of researchers is studying, the type selected will vary.
Here are a few Clinical Research studies offered through SunCoast Blood Centers:
Clinical Research Registry with Paid/Unpaid opportunities.
Collection and curation of a bio-specimens data base, accessible to the research community, for broad spectrum of research studies.

All of Us Research Program
SunCoast Blood Centers is an official partner of the All of Us Research Program, from the National Institutes of Health.
The goal of All of Us is to help researchers understand more about why people get sick or stay healthy.
The program is asking one million or more people to join. People who join will share their unique health information. Researchers will use this information to do studies. This may improve health for everyone.
Diversity and Inclusion is important!
All of Us is asking lots of people to join. Participants are from different races, ethnicities, age groups, and regions of the country. They are also diverse in gender identity, sexual orientation, and health status.
Diversity in a research program is important for several reasons. First, where we live, how we live and our background can affect our health. Second, many groups of people have been left out of research in the past. This means we know less about their health.
By studying data from diverse groups of people, researchers can learn more about what makes people sick and what keeps them healthy.

WHAT IS BIOLINKED?
BioLinked is an electronic roster of people willing to help researchers find cures and treatments by participating in paid and unpaid studies.
WHY IS SUNCOAST BLOOD CENTERS PARTNERING WITH BIOLINKED?
BioLinked is another way to save lives. You could be the link between a patient and a life-saving cure! There are clinical trials occurring all over the United States. These studies could provide cures or treatments for diseases that affect people all over the world. This progress is often delayed many years because scientists cannot locate people to participate in their research. By helping researchers locate willing participants, we are doing our part in bringing new hope to patients as soon as possible.
CAN YOU GET PAID TO PARTICIPATE?
Yes! BioLinked offers paid and unpaid studies that you can participate in.

Avillion Batura Asthma Study
Have asthma? You may be eligible for a paid, at-home study. Contribute to medical knowledge, make a difference for people with asthma, and get paid – all from home.
|Imagine an asthma treatment that relieves symptoms and helps prevent the worsening of asthma symptoms over time. Our research partner is seeking volunteers for a paid, at-home research study that seeks to improve the way we treat this chronic condition. Though asthma management has come a long way, the frequency of emergency department visits due to asthma has remained relatively unchanged in the last 15 years. Researchers are working to change that, and your participation in this study could help. Plus, you could receive up to $300 compensation for your effort.|
