“I wanted to help researchers find the best treatments for melanoma.”
Ken Wolfe, of Jacksonville, Ark., UAMS Research Participant


triAnyone interested in UAMS research volunteer opportunities can receive mobile text message alerts about new studies.

You can join the text alert service by starting a new text message and entering 411247  in place of the phone number, then texting the word UAMSresearch.

After you sign up, you’ll begin receiving notices of a wide range of clinical studies, from mental wellness to cancer. The service is provided at no cost, although standard text rates apply. The frequency of text messages will vary, but the number is expected to average only one or two per month. If you want to stop receiving these text messages, just text the word STOP to 411247.

When a new study begins enrolling participants, those who have signed up for the text service will receive a text message that briefly describes the study and provides a phone number to call for anyone interested in participating.

Why sign up?

  • Research that leads to better health and health care is not possible without volunteer participants.
  • Many studies are looking for healthy people of all ages, while some need participants with certain health conditions.
  • UAMS participates in national clinical studies (clinical trials) for new drugs and treatments.
  • Text alerts are an easy way to stay informed about UAMS research opportunities.

The research text alerts are part of an effort by the UAMS Translational Research Institute to increase the number of available research participants to help speed the pace of research. Quality clinical studies depend upon a deep and diverse pool of participants like you!
