Volunteer as a Research Participant

Volunteer as a Research Participant

As a university, SMU is in a privileged position to integrate research, education, and outrearch. While research on mindfulness has been increasing and a variety of benefits to practicing mindfulness have been found, there is still lots to be learnt! If you are interested in mindfulness and would like to support our research, please click here to sign up to our research participant volunteer list. Note that participation in research is always voluntary and you will receive an informed consent form before beginning any study providing your with essential information about the research. Also, all research at SMU has to be reviewed and approved by SMU Institutional Review Board to ensure it is consistent with ethical research practices.

For all research studies, we intend to provide some feedback on the individual and/or summary results to participants as a small token of appreciatetion for your participation. For some studies, monetary and other incentives (e.g., vouchers, donations to your favorite charity) may also be available.
