How the Donation Process Works


Once you have signed up to participate in the Gilead Sciences Onsite Healthy Donor Program, one of our research coordinators will reach out to conduct an over-the-phone screening that takes about 10-15 minutes.

During the screen, you will be asked questions about your health and demographic information.


Informed Consent and Documentation

Once you are deemed eligible to participate in a study, you will be emailed an Informed Consent Form (ICF).

Informed Consent is the most important aspect of any research study as it outlines and confirms research participants' rights. The ICF may be signed electronically.


After all proper documentation is on file, we will schedule your blood collection appointment with one of our trained, licensed phlebotomists.

On the day of your appointment, please make sure to be hydrated and follow all instructions provided by your research coordinator.



At the end of your appointment, you will receive a $50 prepaid gift card for your contribution.
