Research Recruitment and Retention Program (R3)

Mission

Delays in recruiting participants are a major barrier to progress in clinical and translational research. BU CTSI’s Research Recruitment and Retention Program (R3) exists to help researchers succeed in efficiently meeting participant recruitment goals for clinical and translational research studies, including randomized clinical trials. We assist both investigator-initiated and industry-sponsored research at BU, BMC, and our partner institutions. Our approaches to recruitment will take advantage of BMC clinical and administrative data; diverse recruitment approaches that have succeeded at BU, BMC, and affiliated health centers; the insights of experienced clinical investigators; and novel approaches such as social media outreach.
