Study Name:

Sickle Cell Disease At-Home Research Study


Location: Nationwide

Frequently Asked Questions

You can withdraw from the study or decline participation at any time for any reason.

All of our studies and staff are HIPAA compliant and follow all state and federal regulations. We keep your information confidential. Check out our privacy and protection policies to learn more.

Yes. However, to participate in most studies, you will need to provide proof of your diagnosis. Even if you are not currently seeing a physician, you can still sign an authorization for Medical Record Release from your former physician that can serve as proof of diagnosis. Previous medical records can serve as proof of diagnosis.

We may ask you to sign a Release of Medical Records so that we can provide researchers with the data they need to conduct as comprehensive of a study as possible. Your de­-identified medical information will help translate laboratory results from collected samples into clinical information that may be used to develop new therapies and/or diagnostics.

No. We collect blood and other samples from donors in order to provide scientists with quality samples for their research. We do not perform diagnostic tests.
