Thank you for your interest in enrolling in The University of Iowa’s Preventive Intervention Center (PIC) registry of future research participants. The purpose of this registry is to identify individuals who have an interest in participating in research studies conducted by researchers at PIC.
If or when there is an appropriate study, you will be contacted by the PIC recruiter with information about a study either by letter, or e-mail. The purpose of the contact will be to let you know about a study and to see if you are interested and eligible The number and type of study volunteers needed each year varies, so we can not guarantee that you will be contacted or enrolled in a study.
Participation in any study is voluntary, and submitting your name to the registry in no way obligates you to respond to any requests for study volunteers.
