Register4 was launched in October 2010 with one simple aim - to help researchers spend less time and money on recruiting participants for their projects, so they can spend more time delivering greater health benefits from cancer research.

It’s national, it’s online and it’s for women and men who volunteer their time to participate in approved cancer research. An initiative by the National Breast Cancer Foundation, it only takes 3 minutes to join and it’s absolutely free. And of course, members’ details are kept completely secure, private and confidential.

How does Register4 help cancer research?

Researchers speak often of how long it can take to find large groups of the right people to participate in their research projects - it can take 1-2 years or more.

The time to recruit and identify suitable participants can be lengthy and with variable success. Register4 is able to deliver a pool of women and men for studies, many times within 48 hours, so that medical research funding can be used more effectively.

Am I eligible to join?

Register4 is open to anyone aged 18 and over. You do not need to have had cancer to become a member. We also accept membership from outside Australia, however this may affect your involvement in some studies.
