Brief Summary:
Registry program for volunteers who are willing to serve as control subjects in future research studies.

Condition or disease

Detailed Description:

The registry is a collection of volunteers willing to participate as control subjects in research studies. Control subjects are people who do not have a specific disease; therefore they can serve a critical role as a comparison with people who have the disease or other characteristic being studied. Once registered, participants will be notified about studies they may be able to participate in as a control.

Participation requires:

  1. signing a consent form
  2. answering a short health survey
  3. providing a DNA sample via a mouthwash kit

The registry allows scientists to select study participants based on whether or not they have a specific genetic change that may be relevant to a disease under investigation. Having the ability to access controls when needed is an extremely valuable resource that will speed up scientific discoveries.
