Recruiting participants for studies and engaging with the community are what make the research we do possible. Volunteers enable us to carry out our critical mission here at the Hope Clinic.

Enrolling Studies

It isn’t just doctors and scientists who make research & medical advances possible. Volunteers are essential every day to help us carry out our mission here at the Hope Clinic.


  1. Volunteer on our Community Advisory Board (CAB):The Hope Clinic Community Advisory Board (CAB) serves as a voice for the greater Atlanta community, for study participants, and for the subsets of the population most affected by the diseases in our scope of research. It is a diverse group of community members committed to the development of relevant & representative research trials at Hope Clinic. CAB members represent all walks of life & are part of the very communities we seek to engage in our studies. The CAB provides valued insight and feedback that guides implementation strategies & ensures concerns of the community are heard and addressed.  

  2. Volunteer in a Research Study in Atlanta: Our clinical research trial participants are heroes. Their commitment and altruism are instrumental in advancing health and preventing disease. Please join us in our quest to improve health and defeat life-threatening infections by volunteering for a clinical research study. We are currently enrolling volunteers in Atlanta and the greater Atlanta area into our clinical research trials. Volunteers receive compensation to offset their time commitment for study calls & visits.

  • If you are eligible for a study after completing the questionnaire the recruiter will schedule a screen appointment with you.  
  • You will receive an e-mail verification of your appointment, directions to our clinic and the consent form to review before your visit.

  • When you first arrive you will fill out contact information and a basic medical questionnaire provided at the front desk.
