DiscoverME is WPI's translational research program.  Translational research aims to move discoveries from the research lab to medical practice as quickly as possible.  For instance, studies that reveal diagnostic markers provide critical information that can be used to identify more effective treatments.  This program is designed to inform the public of the latest research advances in the laboratory at the University of Nevada, Reno, the clinical practice at WPI, and other notable worldwide research.

Volunteer Opportunities in Research

Future medical discoveries are not possible without research and clinical research is not possible without volunteers.


Successful recruitment of the appropriate study population can be a significant challenge for researchers.  You can help overcome this challenge by participating in a research program as a patient or healthy volunteer.
