Male birth control shot--where to find trials

So I saw on the VP page a link to this tumblr which has a link to this article about the male birth control shot.

I can see that it's in trials right now. Does anyone here have any idea how to find out where those trials are taking place? My partner would like to participate so that I can get my IUD out sooner than in a year when it expires, to find out whether some of the issues I'm having are IUD/Birth Control-related.

[Back story, when my IUD comes out next may, I'm probably not going on any other birth control. We haven't decided whether we will use condoms, FAM or just not bother trying NOT to conceive and see what happens, but I'm not sure that we will be ready to be making babies in a year's time given that I'd like to have had our wedding before I get pregnant. Definitely not ready now, but I think my IUD is causing more issues than some of my doctors are willing to accept, and I'd like to get it out sooner--but not at the risk of getting pregnant right away or having to use condoms because no. I'm also very tempted to say F worrying about getting married first and just get the thing out now, but if I do that I will definitely be using FAM. Actually I pretty much just talked myself into that solution.]

Anyway, I'm not sure how to find these trials so my partner can get in on them, if they're willing to do the reversal shot in a couple years. Any idea on how to find that info?
