About Science 37
Science 37 brings clinical research opportunities to patients in their homes anywhere, anytime. We envision a future where patients, scientists, doctors, inventors, thinkers, and doers are making the world a better place, together.
Our core focus is making the clinical trial experience better for patients — we use a siteless, decentralized approach to conducting research that puts patients first. By using telemedicine and mobile device technology in our model, including our NORA® app, we aim to remove geographical barriers and make it easier for patients to participate in research regardless of where they live.
Science 37 aims to continue expanding into new therapeutic areas and introduce these research studies to a much broader swath of the population, including those with limited access to major medical facilities where clinical trials are typically offered.
Frequently Asked Questions
How are Science 37 research studies different?
Improving the clinical research process for patients is the mission of Science 37, which is why we make sure that any part of the research study that can be done in the home comes to you in your home. People join research studies to help move science forward, and our model allows you to spend the time you volunteer on research, not traveling to a research site.
What does a typical research study look like?
A research study is used to determine whether new investigational treatments are safe and effective. The government has established many rules to help ensure that research studies are conducted in the most ethical and safe way possible. Participants receive specific interventions according to a research plan (protocol) developed by investigators. These interventions may be investigational medications or devices, procedures, or changes to behavior. Research studies may compare a new medical approach to a standard one that is already available, to a placebo that contains no active investigational medication, or to no intervention. In observational research studies, participants will share personal information but will not receive any interventions. These elements will vary depending on the research study and are discussed in detail during the informed consent process.
Why volunteer to take part in a research study?
People volunteer to:
- Help others by contributing to medical knowledge
- Get more involved in their own health care and learn about their condition
- Join a community and get support
Can I tell my doctor? Will my doctor get involved?
You can always share information about the research study with your primary doctor or healthcare provider. We encourage you to do so, especially if this is someone you know well and trust. Your doctor can be an additional resource when you are first learning about a research study and have many questions. You will continue to see your doctor throughout the research study for routine visits and tests. Our study team are available to talk to both of you anytime if there are any concerns or questions. Working together helps to ensure that other medications or treatments you receive will not be a problem with the research study protocol.
Will taking part in a research study cost me anything?
There is no cost to participate, and some research studies offer reimbursement for your time and effort. This will vary depending on the research study and is discussed during the informed consent process.
How long is a research study?
The duration of a research study will vary depending on the protocol. Research studies are designed by a team of expert scientists, physicians, and statisticians. When you learn about a research study, you will be informed about the time commitment needed before you consent to participate.
How do I take part in a research study from home? How do I receive study supplies?
Science 37 research studies are designed to make participation easier for you. Where permitted, study supplies are shipped directly to your home. If you have any problems with receiving the supplies, you will be able to contact your study team at any time. The NORA app on your study smartphone will keep you connected to the study team and ensure that you know what to do, and when to do it. NORA displays your personalized study calendar and sends you reminders and notifications.
Can I talk to other people about the research study?
Besides talking to the study staff, you should minimize sharing your experience in the research study with others. While talking about your experience is an important part of feeling supported, we ask that you not share information about the research study on social media or with other research study participants. This helps to ensure the most valid and highest quality scientific results. Our study team are always available to address your questions and concerns.
What if I want to leave a research study?
You may leave the research study at any time and for any reason. You are under no obligation to give a reason why. While we do our best to make our research studies as easy as possible for you to take part in, we understand that there are many reasons why finishing may not be possible. You are not obligated to complete the research study.
What happens to me after I complete the research study?
After you complete the research study, your study team will talk with you to answer your questions and get your feedback on your overall experience during the trial. As a Science 37 research study participant, you will have access to news and updates about medical discoveries, educational content, and future research opportunities. You will see the research study results on the Science 37 website once they become available. You will continue to see your local primary doctor or healthcare provider for routine medical care.
