Many different ones: There are many medical research studies going on throughout the country. One can search the internet by looking for particular diseases, or by looking for particular medical schools and medical centers. The government's nih may have information too. Research studies have very strict criteria on who is eligible, so sometimes it is hard for a person to qualify. Good luck searching the web!

NIH.org and local: You want to know if there are studies you can join. Local papers advertise for healthy normal subjects daily. Local university does as well in their school paper. And the nih has a listing of studies looking for volunteers. Thanks for helping the human race. Be well.
