VRC researchers seek healthy volunteers 18 to 60 years old to participate in an investigational vaccine targeting the Nipah virus. There is no Nipah virus in the vaccine, so there is no risk of infection. Financial compensation provided. For more information, call (866) 444-2214, email or visit

New Flu Vaccine Study Seeks Volunteers

Healthy adults ages 18-55 are needed for an influenza (flu) vaccine study. The flu is a respiratory virus that affects people of all ages. NIH researchers are studying a new flu vaccine that may protect against different flu strains. If you are healthy and interested in helping fight the flu, consider joining a research study that aims to learn more about the safety of this vaccine. There is no cost to participate and compensation is provided. For more information, call (866) 444-2214 (TTY users dial 711) or email and refer to study #000320-I. Online:

Diet and SCD Study Seeks Adults

Does diet affect sickle cell disease (SCD)? Clinical Center researchers are conducting a study to help discover the answer. The study will examine the impact of diet and nutrition on the health of adults living with SCD. If you are age 18 years or older, diagnosed with SCD and wish to participate, contact the Office of Patient Recruitment at (866) 444-2214 (TTY users dial 711) or email Refer to study #000518-CC.

CLL Study Recruits

NHLBI researchers are looking for people ages 18 and older who have chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) that has progressed after first-line treatment. Patients will be treated at NIH for the duration (typically 5 weeks) of the ramp-up phase of venetoclax and will then be transitioned to the care of their local hematologist/oncologist for continual treatment. The trial aims to study changes in the genetic makeup of CLL during the early phase of treatment with venetoclax. There is no charge for study-related tests, medications or procedures. Travel assistance may be provided. For more information about study #19-H-0111, call: (866) 444-2214 (TTY users dial 711). Online:

Volunteer to Give Blood Samples

NHLBI researchers seek healthy volunteers to provide blood samples for research studies of blood vessels and immune diseases that cause clotting. In this study, investigators want to understand the basis of these diseases to facilitate development of better treatments. Compensation provided.
