Ripple Science Partners with Western University, Ontario to Drive Neuroscience Study Participant Recruitment
Ripple Releases New Web to Lead Feature in Partnership with BrainsCAN
ANN ARBOR, Michigan – May 06, 2019 – Ripple Science, a SaaS company accelerating clinical research, has partnered with BrainsCAN, Western University’s Canada First Research Excellence Fund (CFREF) initiative in cognitive neuroscience, to develop the OurBrainsCAN participant registry.
Through the partnership, Ripple Science recently released the Ripple SaaS Web to Lead Screening Form enabling researchers to engage the community to promote participation in cognitive neuroscience studies conducted at Western University. Ripple’s web-to-lead feature drives recruitment by providing an easily accessible and confidential form allowing participants to register themselves for studies. Expanding registration size and diversity increases the depth and success of trials which enhances innovation and discovery.
“People in the community are often interested in participating in research and we wanted to provide a convenient and secure way for them to sign up, which will increase our sample size,” shared Dr. Laura Gonzalez, BrainsCAN Community Research Coordinator and co-developer of OurBrainsCAN. “Having a large sample size that is representative of the community will allow us to really apply our research discoveries to the general population.”
“The Ripple Team approached the collaborate with BrainsCAN as an essential step in meeting the needs of multi-site clients engaged in large population studies,” commented Peter Falzon, Ripple Science CEO. “It was great validation to see BrainsCAN exceed their enrollment targets with several hundred participants self-registering via Ripple’s web-to-lead feature within weeks of its release.”
