Become a lifechanger - participate in a clinical trial and get paid for your time

Read more about our COVID-19 measures or give us a call on 1800 243 733 if you have any questions.

Located within Melbourne’s Alfred Research Alliance medical precinct, our 94-bed inpatient clinic (formerly known as the Centre for Clinical Studies) is Australia’s largest Phase 1 clinical trial facility.

We have a variety of paid clinical trials in Melbourne, ranging in duration from two days to a whole month. So no matter what your availability looks like, we are likely to have a study you can participate in.

Not only will you be reimbursed up to $360 per day for your time, but you can also help in the creation of new treatments for dozens of medical conditions, including vaccines for Coronavirus / COVID-19.

For our Phase 1 clinical studies, we are looking for people who do not have the condition for which the medication is being developed. The purpose of these studies is to see how your body processes different medications.

We have a constantly changing roster of studies with a number of options available. Not all studies are listed on our website, so please register your interest or give us a call on 1800 243 733 to find out more about currently available studies that may match your eligibility.
