Join a clinical trial

Meridian is now accepting volunteers — including healthy adults — for paid clinical trials nationwide.

Research studies offer a way for almost anyone, regardless of age or background, to help improve human health and wellbeing.

Beyond helping advance medicine, you may also:

  • Get care from a local doctor at no cost
  • Learn about new medicines in development
  • Receive study-related medical exams at no cost
  • Get paid for participating (amounts differ for each study)

Let's find a study that's right for you

Simply complete the form on this page. After you submit your information a Meridian enrollment specialist will contact you. Together, we'll review studies that might be right for you and answer your questions.

There is never an obligation to join — we're here to help you make the best decision.

Friends and family referral program

Even if you can't join a clinical trial, you may be able to refer a friend, family member, neighbor, or colleague who can. You can get paid up to $25 for each successful referral made to Meridian. Meridian enrollment specialists can provide details when you sign up or call.
