You’re so welcome. I encourage everyone to go participate in clinical trials. It’s so cool to be a part of the process. And usually the researchers are so passionate and appreciative. Participating as a subject humanizes science and makes it more tangible for people who otherwise aren’t in touch with it.

Maybe when you’re old and know you ain’t got long you can just try a little bit of HIV to see if you were immune the whole time.

I mean if I knew I had <3 years or something - fuck it, let's make a win out of it.

You can also earn a living doing it. I did one last month that paid $15,050. I just received my final payment yesterday. It allows me to be a better Santa Clause to my poor family.

Hell yeah. I have been in other paid studies too. Most recently one for Botox lol. Got free Botox and got paid for them to study my face. Lol. Make that money and enjoy the holidays.

Where do you find them, I have some interest but never really looked into it much.


crown_valley t1_iymztdi wrote

Where do you find "opportunities" like this?? Is there like a website I'm not aware of or something?

If you have an expensive medical condition, you might consider the free health care of a study that includes travel pay. See for those.

Or, if you're healthy, you can be a healthy human subject for medical research studies, like me. I spent the month of October at a medical clinic so they can test a minute amount of a new drug on me intended to help hypoparathyroidism. In exchange, I collected $15,050. If you're interested, it's worth traveling to other states to do them. Many are paying over $10k currently. You can see them on the website or JALR.Org, which stands for Just Another Lab Rat.

Canada has some also:

Man where do you find trials that pay that well. I have looked on the websites that people recommend and there's either none near me or they want such a specific demographic I don't fall into it.

> there's either none near me

It's unlikely that they will be near you. I traveled from Detroit to Madison WI for my last one and my next one is in Nebraska. It's worth driving all day a couple of times for several thousand dollars.

Yeah I'm currently in university and in Canada so I don't know the difference that will make but driving far kinda sucks with school.

My Canadian friend is trying to do the US ones because they pay better here.

Yeah if you're in Detroit I'm across the river so I suppose it's the same distance

you can even make money doing them

Yep. I took part in the Pfizer Covid trial that just ended a couple months ago. I got paid 5$ a week to answer a yes or no question on my phone and around 200$ for each in person visit. It was double blinded but once it got approved they told you if you got the vaccine or the placebo and I ended up getting the vaccine months before anyone I knew. Win win

I did like 10 15 paid studies when I was a student . I got paid anywhere between 250$ to 3500$. average around 700. most of them I stayed in the clinic from Friday night to Sunday evening. took a dose of a different drug and they took blood samples. it was great I just brought my homework. the 3500 one I was in the clinic for 2 weeks though. that one was a little rough but still better than working a random construction job for months to save up that much money. they had decent wifi and the food was okay
