Evidence-based research is at the foundation of CHADD's efforts to improve the lives of individuals affected by ADHD. CHADD is committed to supporting researchers who study the many facets of ADHD. Researchers often seek human subjects to participate in these studies as they learn more about ADHD's diagnosis, treatment, and its implications across the lifespan for children, adults and families.

As a service to CHADD members and the general public, CHADD is happy to provide this list for those who wish to participate in a research study. This list is not a comprehensive list of all studies. In each case, the researcher conducting the study has requested to be listed here, and the studies listed have been approved by CHADD's Professional Advisory Board.

To learn more about participating in research studies and clinical trials see The Center for Information and Study on Clinical Research Participation (CISCRP)'s Education Center, or FDA 101: Clinical Trials and Institutional Review Boards.
