Research Participant Information

WELCOME!

Research has led to important discoveries that make our lives better. By taking part in a research study, you can contribute to the better understanding of how a treatment or intervention works in people of different ethnic backgrounds and genders. Research may also help to improve medical procedures in the future. At McLaren, we are committed to protecting the rights and welfare of those who choose to volunteer in research.

This page was designed to help current and potential research volunteers in the decision making process. You will find basic information about research and your rights as a research participant.

The Research Integrity department welcomes your questions and concerns. You can contact our office at (248) 484-4950.
