Help evaluate new dermatology treatments

If you are living with a dermatology condition affecting your skin, hair, or nails, participating in a clinical research study may be an option.

Many conditions like eczema, psoriasis, alopecia, and scleroderma lack treatments that work for every patient. ICON matches patients with studies for these and many other conditions at no cost for patients.

Am I eligible to participate in clinical research studies?

What to Expect

When you sign up for the free ICON Study Match program, clinical research specialists will review your information and inform you of studies you may be eligible for. When we find a match, ICON or the local study doctor's office may contact you for further screening. You may also be invited to complete surveys or participate in focus groups.

When you enroll in a study, you will learn study details, have a chance to ask questions, and be asked to provide written, informed consent. Every study has different requirements, including how and where you receive care and how many and how long study visits will be. All study participants receive regular study-related medical attention and are closely observed for safety concerns.
