23andMe, Stanford, personal genomics study

By Razib Khan | April 21, 2011 12:43 am

Call to Participate in a New Study on Social Networking and Personal Genomics:

Do you share your information with others? How has your personal genetic information influenced your lifestyle and the way you approach your health and medical decisions? Can genetic information create new communities and connections?

The Social Networking and Personal Genomics Study at the Center for Biomedical Ethics invites participants between the ages of 18 and 75 to spend approximately 2 hours with us in a focus group setting. Participants must have purchased direct-to-consumer personal genetic information from 23andMe, Inc., shared their information with others, and be willing to discuss their perspectives and experiences. Focus group members will receive a $50 gift card for their participation and childcare will be available on an as-needed basis at no cost. For additional information or to enroll, please contact Simone Vernez, Project Manager, by email at svernez@stanford.edu or by telephone at (650) 723- 9364. For more information on the study itself, including specific research aims and funding please visit http://bioethics.stanford.edu/research/SocialNetworkingandPersonalGenomics.html. For general information about participant rights, contact 1-866-680-2906.
