Get Involved!

There are always great ways to become involved in vaccine research at Vanderbilt. Please follow the links below for more information. 

1. Volunteer for a study

We have a variety of studies going on right now that seek to enroll healthy adult volunteers. Many of these studies involve either licensed vaccines (like influenza vaccines) or vaccines in development. These studies typically require 5-10 study visits, which are compensated based on the time and effort required to participate. If you think you would like to participate in a study, please email us

2. Volunteer as a recruiter

You may have medical conditions that prevent you from participating in research, or may simply wish not to take part in studies we are conducting. We welcome your involvement as an advocate for vaccine research, letting people know about our studies, hanging up flyers, and helping us advance our mission to bring safe and effective vaccines to the world. Contact us by email to volunteer.

3. Employment opportunities

The VVRP is a dynamic place to work and Vanderbilt University Medical Center is consistently ranked as a highly desirable place to work in Nashville. Please email us if you are interested in hearing about opportunities for research technicians (laboratory), research nurses, regulatory specialists, and other positions.
