Design Service for Recruitment Ads
YCCI can provide professionally designed recruitment ads at no cost for investigator initiated research. We have invested in creating ad templates, which allows investigators to leverage the strength of the Yale brand. All ads are designed to be effective and culturally sensitive. YCCI can also support industry funded trials with the same opportunities, however cost must be supported by the industry partner.
