About Us

At PCORI, our mission is to fund research that can help patients and those who care for them make better-informed decisions about their health care. When people contribute to this research, it’s important that they hear about the results they’ve helped make possible.

Sharing the overall results of studies with participants fulfills an important ethical responsibility to those who take part in research. We have always encouraged PCORI-funded researchers to return results to their study participants and have recently made improvements to our process to emphasize the importance of this practice and support awardees in their efforts. Now, we are providing a clearer, more consistent message to our awardees about results return and will reinforce this message throughout the award and research process.
