How do I participate in the UCLA ATLAS Community Health Initiative?
Participation in the UCLA ATLAS Community Health Initiative is safe, fast, and easy.
Your participation in the UCLA ATLAS Community Health Initiative is voluntary. If you agree to participate but change your mind, we will honor your request. To ensure you have the time to think over your decision carefully, there will be a 10-day window from the time you sign the consent to the time your sample becomes available for researchers. Even after the 10-day window, you can change your mind.
To stop the use of your sample or data in a study, you can contact the UCLA ATLAS Precision Health Biobank at 310-825-4136.
Any unused samples will be removed from the UCLA ATLAS Precision Health Biobank and any researcher who received your samples will be asked to destroy them. Please note that we cannot retrieve materials that have already been used by researchers.
For any questions related to your rights as a research subject, contact the UCLA Office of the Human Research Protection Program at 310-825-5344.
