Making money in clinical trials may seem desperate to some, but for others it may provide the cash needed to get by.
Usually people think of clinical trials as taking weird new medicines, and risking their lives and health. This always isn’t the case however.
I invite you to check out Just Another Lab Rat, or JALR.
JALR is a website dedicated to helping others find and participate in clinical research opportunities.
Can Anyone Be A Lab Rat?
To clarify, JALR isn’t the company actually looking for participants for the trials. They provide companies that are.
In order to qualify as a trial participant, there is usually a medical criteria. For example, they may ask for only healthy female participants ages 25-45 that have never been pregnant.
While that isn’t the only criteria, it is simply an example.
How Much Do Clinical Trials Pay?
Clinical trials can pay any amount of money, the amount paid is usually based on the risk and length of the study. Other factors that may be considered are the rarity of people that meet the criteria of the trial.
Generally if only a few people may qualify, or if you will be participating for an extended period of time, you can expect to be paid more.
JALR estimates, but doesn’t guarantee, that a full time participant can make between $18,000 and $28,000 a year.
Can This Be Done From Home?
Usually not, clinical research is usually conducted in a controlled environment where the participants can be monitored.
You are allowed to go home in between tests in most cases, but you may be asked to participate in a fully supervised test where you are under 24 hour supervision.
I’m no expert on the subject of clinical trials, I’m just the messenger. I advise that you read more over at the JALR Frequently Asked Questions page.
