Study Promotion and Recruitment

This service is provided by the Community Engagement Core Resource (CECR).


The Community Engagement Core Resource (CECR) provides assistance with research study promotion through potential sources for participant recruitment, including ResearchMatch, the data warehouse, RecruitMe, and our own research registry, which are all available to Columbia University (CU) researchers. We also post flyers and advertise research studies at our off-campus space, the Columbia Community Partnership for Health (CCPH).

CCPH Research Registry: CECR assists CU researchers with participant recruitment through the CCPH research registry. Individuals who are members of the CCPH research registry will receive information about studies that are recruiting in Harlem, Washington Heights, and Inwood. If they are interested in participating they may contact the researcher recruiting for the study and ask questions, check their eligibility and/or volunteer to participate.

Starting in March 2020, we are also providing support for COVID-19 research. 


This service is available to all researchers at Columbia University. 


There is no cost for this service.
