Signing up here does not mean you have to take part in future studies. If you decide not to take part in a study, it will have no influence on your ability to receive treatment or take part in other research studies at the University of California.

If you decide to complete the questionnaire, we will contact you when and if we have studies that you might be eligible for. Some of these studies are conducted over the internet and others require in-person sessions at the University. We will ask you which types of studies you are interested in participating. We will only email you about studies that might be a good match for you.

All of our studies are reviewed by the University of California Committee for the Protection of Human Subjects before we would contact you.
