Wake Forest news for faculty and staff

Learn more about how to participate in clinical trials

Wake Forest Baptist Health is starting an internal campaign to inform faculty, staff and students of ways to register for clinical trials. As an employee of Wake Forest University, you can be involved in shaping the future of health in our region and beyond.

The Translational Science Institute (TSI) has developed Be Involved as a tool to access information about clinical trials at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. Be Involved is an opportunity for individuals to learn more about current and upcoming clinical trials and request to participate if interested. Researchers are seeking healthy people as well as those with specific diseases and conditions.

Being a part of an internationally recognized medical center is an opportunity to participate in and contribute to furthering the research being conducted at Wake Forest. Clinical trials further the mission of WFBH by generating and translating knowledge to prevent, diagnose and treat disease. As an employee participating in these clinical studies, you are helping to further the mission of WFBH while receiving excellent care.

Choosing to participate in a clinical trial is an important personal decision. It is often helpful to talk to a physician, family members or friends about deciding to join a trial. After identifying some trial options within Be Involved, contact the study research staff listed in each study profile for additional information.

Please contact Rachel Woodside at the Translational Science Institute with any questions. She can be reached at 336.716.5076 or rwoodsid@wakehealth.edu.
