How Joining a Study Works
1. Fill out the Survey
After you fill out the research survey, a MiraKind researcher will review your information and you will be sent a consent form.
2. Provide your DNA sample
Once consented, you will receive a DNA collection kit in the mail from MiraKind. After you perform a simple cheek swab, just put your sample in the pre-paid envelope and mail it back to the MiraKind laboratory. Participation in a study is free, but you do have the option to obtain your individual results if you are eligible, through a physician of your choice for a discounted fee of $195, which covers the basic costs of processing the test.
3. Discover the answers together
As a study participant, you may receive a follow-up study-specific questionnaire to help us gain a more thorough understanding of your health history. MiraKind will analyze study participants’ DNA samples together with their health profiles to answer specific research question(s). All study participants will have the opportunity to be among the first to learn about the research findings through a MiraKind webinar that will take place at the conclusion of the study.
