Have you been diagnosed with atrial fibrillation (AFib)?

Join our at-home study to research a potential drug treatment option for AFib.

Help us as we work toward finding better treatments for patients with atrial fibrillation!

We’re looking for volunteers 18 and older with a confirmed diagnosis of AFib. This study will investigate the safety and effectiveness of a study drug.

If you have AFib and are at risk of stroke and systemic embolism, you may be able to participate.

Study Snapshot

Age range:
18 years and older
Length of the study:
Between 9 and 33 months
CompensationUp to $1,134
LocationRemote (from your home). Visits will consist of phone or video calls with the study team and visits with home health providers.
This is a clinical trial to evaluate a study drug in the treatment of AFib. During this study, all participants will receive treatment for their AFib. Once you enroll, you will be assigned to 1 of 2 treatment options: a current standard-of-care medication or the study drug.

What to Expect

First, sign up with your email and fill out a short questionnaire to find out whether you qualify for the study. If you do, a patient experience coordinator will contact you to finish the pre-screening process. If you are eligible and want to participate, we’ll walk you through the steps for enrollment and the informed consent process.

Study overview:

All participants in this study will get treatment for their AFib. However, this is a randomized study. This means that you will be assigned to receive either the study drug or an active, standard-of-care treatment. No participant will receive only a placebo.

This is a double-blind, double-dummy study, which means neither you nor the study team will know if you are getting the study drug or the standard-of-care treatment. If you are eligible, you will be asked to provide vital signs and an electrocardiogram (ECG) to document your condition. Conveniently, you will access your doctor and study team from the comfort of your home.


Step 1. Meet with Patient Experience Coordinator

After you fill out a short questionnaire, a patient experience coordinator will walk you through the pre-screening process.

Step 2. Provide Confirmation of AFib Diagnosis

Within 15 days of contacting us, you will attend up to two screening visits remotely.

Step 3. Use Study Medication and Record Results

Once enrolled, you will be asked to take the study medication and complete surveys.

Have Questions?

We have an awesome team of doctors, researchers, and patient experience coordinators who are eager to help guide you through the research process.

How are Science 37 research studies different?

Our core focus is making the clinical research experience better for patients — we use a site-less, decentralized approach to conducting research that puts participants first. That’s why we make sure that any part of the research study that can be done remotely comes to you in your home. People join research studies to help move science forward, and our model allows you to spend more time participating in the research, not traveling to a research site.

What does a typical research study look like?

Research studies help us determine whether new investigational treatments are safe and effective. The government has established many rules to help ensure that research studies are conducted in the safest and most ethical ways possible and that participants are protected throughout. Participants receive specific interventions—which may be investigational devices, or procedures—according to a research plan (protocol) developed by the investigators.

Why volunteer to take part in a research study?

Volunteers are part of the next wave of science and can influence the future of medicine. Advances in research have allowed people to get personalized cancer treatment, be vaccinated for polio, have less invasive tests, manage their diabetes, and countless other developments—and these breakthroughs wouldn’t be possible without volunteers. People volunteer to help others by contributing to medical knowledge, get more involved in their own health care and learn about their condition, join a community and get support. During the informed consent process, you’ll learn about all of the potential benefits and risks of joining the research study.

Can I tell my doctor? Will my doctor get involved?

You can always share information about the research study with your primary doctor or healthcare provider. Your doctor can be an additional resource when you are first learning about a research study and have any questions. You can continue to see your doctor throughout the research study for routine visits and tests. Our study team is available to talk to both you and your doctor if there are any concerns or questions. However, because these studies are investigational, the result of the study may not be available to individual patients.

Will taking part in a research study cost me anything?

There is no cost to participate, and many research studies offer reimbursement for your time and effort. Compensation depends on the research study and is discussed during the informed consent process.

How long is a research study?

Research studies are designed by a team of expert scientists, physicians, and statisticians. The duration of a research study varies depending on the protocol that this team develops. When you learn about a research study, you will be informed about the time commitment needed before you agree to participate.

How do I take part in a research study from home? How do I receive study supplies?

Science 37 research studies are designed to make participation easier for you. Where permitted, study supplies are shipped directly to your home. If you have any problems with receiving the supplies, you will be able to contact the study team at any time. The Science 37 app on your study smartphone will keep you connected to the study team and ensure that you know what to do, and when to do it. The app displays your personalized study calendar and sends you reminders and notifications.

What if I want to leave a research study?

You can leave the research study at any time and for any reason. With this particular trial, you have the ability to stop using the study drug and still continue participating in the study. Further, you are under no obligation to complete a research study or give a reason why you’re leaving one. Although we do our best to make our research studies as easy as possible for you to take part in, we understand that there are many reasons why finishing may not be possible. However, if you do not complete the study, full compensation may not be available to you.

What happens to me after I complete the research study?

After you complete the research study, the study team will talk with you to answer your questions and get your feedback on your overall experience during the study. As a Science 37 research study participant, you will have access to news and updates about medical discoveries, educational content, and future research opportunities. You will continue to see your local primary doctor or healthcare provider for routine medical care.
