Become a participant

When you participate in research at Planned Parenthood, you’re helping clinicians, scientists, and researchers develop new treatments, medications, and best practices to provide the best health care for all people. 

As a volunteer participant of any study, your safety and comfort is our top priority. All of our research projects are overseen by an independent committee to ensure you’re informed of the risks and benefits of participating and that your rights are protected. We want you to be fully informed about all aspects of a study before and during your involvement, and you can always end your participation at any time.
