Communities hold the key to showing and teaching us the best ways to accelerate progress. By hearing directly from you what’s most important—your priorities, needs, and limitations—we can lift up the rare disease community as we develop tools and programs. By signing up to share your thoughts in our user studies, you will be supporting the rare disease community—and you will also get paid for research participation in the form of an Amazon gift card.
User Experience Research at CZI
In order to build human-centered solutions, CZI’s User Experience Research team works to discover and understand people’s attitudes, sentiments, struggles, and needs. The team conducts research through interviews, surveys, group brainstorms, co-design workshops, virtual visits, and more.
If you decide to participate in user studies, you may be asked for your opinion on ideas, tools, and services. Sometimes we conduct user experience research on new ideas, while other times we ask for input after an idea or tool has launched, so that we can understand how it can be improved. By conducting user experience research using video conferencing, we’re able to reach the widest possible audience of potential participants. We can’t wait to hear from you!

How does participation work?
Sign up and fill out a brief questionnaire that will help our research team match you to particular studies. If you’re a good fit, a team member will reach out to you via email and invite you to participate in a specific user experience research discussion. We may ask additional questions before confirming your participation. Studies will take place online via video conference.
