What is a research volunteer?
A research volunteer is anyone who volunteers or donates his/her services by observing or assisting with research projects on behalf of The Ohio State University and The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center without receiving course credit or compensation from OSU/OSUWMC for these activities. This may include students, community members and employees (in limited circumstances). Qualified research volunteers can provide meaningful assistance in laboratory, clinical or translational research settings while benefiting from educational enrichment opportunities.
