To accomplish this mission, NFHC researchers perform several different types of research studies in human populations.

If you are interested in volunteering for a research study, you can join our Recruitment Database. Our database is used to contact potential volunteers about current IRB-approved studies. If you are contacted, we will give you information about the study and you can decide if you would like to participate. We may ask you specific questions to see if you qualify for the study. Participation is always voluntary.

Efforts are made to protect your confidentiality by storing your information in a secure, electronic database and limiting access to the information. Your personal information is not shared outside of our research department. Though it is unlikely due to the security measures, there is a risk of loss of confidentially. Your information will be kept for five years, with the option to continue in the database after that time. You can have your information removed from our database at any time by calling us at the number listed on the Enrollment Page.

You can refuse to participate or withdraw at any time from this database without harming your relationship with the researchers or the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, or in any other way receive a penalty or loss of benefits to which you are otherwise entitled. If you have any questions you can contact us via email at NFHCclinic@unl.edu.

If you have any questions about your rights as a research participant, you can contact the UNL Human Subjects Protection Program Institutional Review Board at (402) 472-6965. irb@unl.edu
