  1. Researchers are obliged not to make compensation for participating in a clinical drug trial too attractive. Pay is based on the type of trial and how long it runs. Shorter trials usually pay less: typically $25 to $100 for a half day. In a longer, more difficult trial, you may make $100 to $200 per day, and up to thousands of dollars for the entire project [source: GPGP.net]. While some people move from trial to trial, no healthcare is offered to participants outside of the study. If you suffer physical injury during the study, there is no long-term medical support or additional pay. As a participant at a research facility, you can expect forms of entertainment including music, television, books and video games. Payment is made to subjects at the end of the clinical trial.
