MDRC Recruitment Services

The Michigan Diabetes Research Center (MDRC) Recruitment Service facilitates identification of potential subjects with diabetes for clinical studies/trials in University of Michigan (UM). Since 2010, our Diabetes Research Registry (DRR) has consented >8750 Michigan Medicine’s ambulatory care clinics’ diabetes patients who are interested to participate in clinical diabetes research, have completed questionnaires about their diabetes, consented to have their medical records searched, and agreed to be contacted by investigators with UM IRB-approved research. The DRR determines a patient’s eligibility for a specific clinical study/trial by matching his/her characteristics with the study’s entry criteria. UM investigators can also obtain aggregate counts of de-identified data from the DRR for their grant or interest in clinical trials applications. For more information contact:

Investigators can also work with the MiChart Team to create recruitment alerts of potential volunteers for their study based on eligibility criteria. The MDRC Recruitment Service will be happy to work with investigators to complete such applications.

Similarly, the MDRC Recruitment Service will be happy to work with investigators to complete applications for BCBS to access their network for potential volunteers for their study.
