Recruitment and Marketing

YCCI's Study Recruitment and Marketing unit provides assistance and resources to aid investigators in meeting accrual requirements for research studies. Services include:

  • YCCI staff can pre-screen callers for eligibility for your studies utilizing our Recruitment Call Center.
  • Assisting individual investigators in the design and development of study recruitment materials such as flyers.
  • Developing marketing plans that focus on both general and disease-specific patient recruitment, including social media.
  • YCCI maintains a clinical trials website with a searchable database that allows participants to search for trials based on disease area, gender, age range, keyword, or investigators. It also includes capabilities to search for trials seeking healthy volunteers.
  • Access to local health fairs and community events to encourage participation in clinical research.
  • Access to ResearchMatch, a national registry funded by the Clinical and Translational Science Award program that links potential subjects with researchers.
  • Highlighting a volunteer who has made a powerful contribution to your research with a “Help Us Discover Heros” story on the YCCI website which profiles an array of patient volunteers who tell their stories, and why participating in research has been so meaningful to them.

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.
