5. What are the benefits to people who volunteer to be subjects in research studies?

The benefits of participation in research vary depending on the study. Some research studies offer direct benefits such as providing participants with a health assessment or access to interventions or treatments, or small monetary compensation. Other research studies provide no direct benefit to participants. Nevertheless, participants may find it rewarding to contribute to research that will generate useful knowledge and potentially lead to benefits for others in the future.
