WE ARE STILL RECRUITING (As of January 3, 2013).
The Iranian Genome Project has received approval from the Stanford Institutional Review Board.* If you would like to fill out a screening survey in order to determine eligibility, please visit the link below (click the word Survey). This survey uses Qualtrics, which is a secure website. Before beginning the survey, you may want to collect some information in order to answer the questions as accurately as possible. We do ask questions about your parents’ ancestry and your grandparents’ ancestry. We also ask questions about the where these individuals were born, what languages they spoke, and what religious traditions they practiced. Since we are studying a diaspora population, we are using these to best pinpoint the ancestral background of our subjects. This survey may take 15-20 minutes.
