    I'm not talking about the phase I trials where you're being injected with some weird dangerous drug. But say I were to be taking part in two low-risk trials at the same time, that don't involve injecting highly medical drugs etc. The kind of trial that just sees your reaction to something. If I were doing this are two different university hospitals, what are the chances that they'd find out?

    I'm not sure, but it's something you should really okay with them both because taking part in one could mean you aren't eligible to take part in the other and that's not really fair

    Ask them. They'll probably find out anyway and even if they don't, the reason you're there is to help them test something. The reason you're only allowed to do one is that they might affect the results of each other, so what you'd be doing is pretty much pointless. They might say it's fine but they still need to know. Sure there's another way you can earn the money, or do them one after the other
