Participate in a study
We invite you to participate in one of our studies. Eligibility requirements for participation may vary depending on the study. Completing the questionnaire is voluntary. You may omit a question if you prefer not to answer it. If you prefer not to complete the on-line form, but still interested in learning more about research opportunities, you may call our recruitment line at 919-966-2879. Please include your name, phone # and preferred method of contact.
A study coordinator will review your information to determine if you are eligible for any of our current studies. If you are eligible, you will be contacted. The coordinator will provide you with additional information about the study and schedule a time for you to come in for a screening visit. Although you will be compensated for the initial screening visit, there is not compensation for completing the form. After submitting the questionnaire and you no longer are interested in a study, you may ask us to delete your record by contacting our recruitment line.
We will protect your privacy by storing the collected information on a secure computer at UNC or as a printed document stored in a locked file cabinet. These methods are considered the state of the art security, but no security system is perfect and someone could potentially gain access to the information from your completed questionnaire. You will be given the option to allow us to store the information for 1 month, for 1 year, or indefinitely. After this time, the record will be permanently destroyed. While we have the information on record we will consider you for future studies.
