NIH (The National Institute of Health), and a number of research institutions and hospitals are always looking for healthy volunteers for studies. I am looking into this as a way to make extra income. What do you think? Any experience with this?

It can be good money....if you don't mind being the first one to find out a drug gives you permanent heart damage.

I participated in psych studies when I was in college. Didn't have to take any drugs, just answer a bunch of questions. Interesting sometimes. Nice cash if you have the time and no other way to make money.

I have no experience personally but I have a friend who was involved in research studies in college...if I recall correctly, he was involved in many clinical trials for topical meds, lotions and gels...he made pretty good money...

There is good money to be made if you commit your self to the study for overnight visits. I saw one that paid $9000 for a 45 day stay in a facility with a commitment to not leave the building. Most of the time you will be spending visiting with other participants, playing with the Internet, reading and watching TV. They just call you into the clinic every day or so to give you tests. Nothing that hurts, just tests.

I would prefer something that did not expect that much of a commitment that would be more sociology or psychology related.

In today's economy, I am trying my best to discover all means for extra income outside my regular job while there is still money to be made and our economy completely crashes.
