MRRI Research Volunteer Registry


MRRI maintains a registry of over 2,000 people who have experienced a stroke or traumatic brain injury who are interested in participating in rehabilitation research conducted at MRRI. Click here for a description of ongoing research programs at MRRI. People who have not experienced brain injury or stroke are also part of the registry and may participate in research at MRRI.

Research volunteers with stroke or brain injury are invited to be part of the registry, and we recruit such people from rehabilitation hospitals and clinics in Philadelphia and surrounding areas. Information of research volunteers in the registry is kept confidential following federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) guidelines. Research projects that use the registry are conducted with Institutional Review Board oversight to maintain the highest standards of research ethics.

The registry includes:

  • Research volunteer contact information and demographics
  • Medical history related to stroke or brain injury and any resulting cognitive, language, or movement/mobility impairments

Research volunteers in the MRRI Registry are approached by the labs at MRRI based on the particular scientific goals of each study. The registry is available as a source of local participants for researchers who are approved to engage in collaborative research with MRRI Investigators.
