Participate

We are inviting you to take part in a research study.

Those who take part in a study will have various visits to a study center near the participant’s home.

There is no cost to participate in a study. Those who take part in a study may receive reimbursement.

You may be eligible to participate in a Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Study if:

  • Are an adult
  • Have a diagnosis of moderate to severe COPD
  • Are a current or former smoker
  • Are currently using a daily inhaler for management of your COPD symptoms (not including an inhaler used for flare ups)

There is no cost to participate in a study. Those who take part in a study will receive reimbursement.

Sign Up

What happens if I sign up? We will match you to a study center location in your area that needs volunteers with COPD or notify you when one becomes available. The study team will then contact you and you may have the opportunity to participate if you meet the study's requirements.


If you think you might like to participate in a COPD Study or would like more information, please enter your information below so we can see if you may qualify and can contact you about the studies. Keep in mind that participation is entirely voluntary. If you do decide to take part in a study, you may change your mind about participating at any time.

About Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a progressive lung disease characterized by persistent airflow limitation that makes it difficult to breathe. COPD is primarily caused by long-term exposure to irritants such as cigarette smoke, air pollution and chemical fumes. Genetics and respiratory infections may also play a role in its development.1

While COPD is a chronic and progressive disease, early diagnosis, appropriate management, and lifestyle modifications can help individuals with COPD manage their symptoms, reduce exacerbations, and improve their overall quality of life.2

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a research study?

A research study (also called a clinical trial) is a medical study that helps to answer important questions about an investigational drug – these may include how well an investigational study drug works for a certain condition. All medications must be tested in clinical research studies before they can be approved by the FDA and prescribed to patients.

A research study provides a way to collect data about unapproved drugs, interventions and treatments for submission to the FDA. The FDA can then determine if the drug, intervention or treatment is safe and effective and can be prescribed to patients. Even over-the-counter medications, such as NSAIDs, you may have used to counteract a headache, have gone through the clinical research study process before it was available at your local pharmacy.

The research team will be able to explain more about what the Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Studies will involve, and it is up to you to decide if you want to take part. Participation in these studies is voluntary. Whether or not you decide to participate in this study will not affect your current or future relationships with your doctors. If you decide to participate, you are free to withdraw at any time without affecting those relationships.

We will match you to a study center within a close travel distance from your home. If we are not running a study in your area currently, with your permission, we will keep you in our database and reach out once a study in your area becomes available. If, at any time, you decided you no longer want your information stored, you can opt out and we will delete your details.
