Pain Measurement Study Recruits

NIH researchers are looking for a diverse pool of participants diagnosed with cancer or a tumor and receiving standard or experimental treatment to join a new study that measures pain through facial expressions and vocal communications. Participants will need a smartphone or computer with a camera to complete a questionnaire and record selfie videos. Parental consent is required for minors. Compensation of up to $225 will be provided upon study completion. In addition, there is reimbursement for travel with mileage and accommodation up to but not exceeding $120/night. Contact the Office of Patient Recruitment at (866) 444-2214 (TTY users dial 711) or Refer to study #20-C-0130. Online:
