Research Family Partners is a program that helps families connect with the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center research studies that best suits their interests and needs.
Membership allows the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center to contact you by email or telephone to see if you might have interest in an upcoming study. Otherwise, the law requires you contact us each time.
Partnership saves families the legwork of keeping track of new studies to participate in and provides an advantage to getting a spot in studies that provide various types of compensation.
Some of the studies offer services for free that are beneficial to people with or without disabilities. Others even offer cash. Partnership helps connect you with these studies.
Without the help of family partners, the community would not have the knowledge and treatments that it has today. Without the continued partnership, new knowledge and treatments may not be possible at all.
The rights and privacy of our research study participants are very important to us, please review our Research Study Participants Rights and Privacy Protection Policy.
Our policies abide by national and international law.
For 40 years, researchers at the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center have been working with individuals with and without disabilities and their families to expand our understanding of human development.
We know how fortunate we are to have families share their experiences, time, and knowledge with us. Thank you for making so much of what we do possible.
