How to Participate in a Clinical Trial

All our trials have height, weight, BMI(body mass index) and other criteria which need to be met before we can include participants in the trial.

Steps to taking part in a clinical trial

What our clinical research participants have to say

Hi, I'm Michael. I have done several trials l with NZCR . I love contributing to medical progress. I look forward to visits, the food is amazing and there’s a massive TV with Sky and Netflix. The nurses and doctors are lovely, the care they take to do everything safely and correctly is obvious. I have experienced zero side effects from trial drugs. The clinic stays are ideal for getting away from daily distractions to focus on the trial, reading, or Netflix and you get a thorough medical check.


It was amazing being part of a clinical study that will aid in actual treatment of autoimmune disorders. For me contributing was personal as I have a very dear friend who suffers from this condition. You are treated really well and the Doctors are very informative and honest and encourage you to ask questions at any time. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to give back to the medical field of research.

"Hi I’m Alex, I have done quite a few studies at NZCR. I have found the nurses and doctors to be professional and caring. The facilities themselves to be comfortable, the lounge area providing a nice place to relax. The food portions have been very large and delicious. It's a great way to support my studying without having to take out a student loan."
