Urology Volunteer Research Registry
Thank you for your interest in enrolling in The University of Iowa’s Department of Urology registry for future research participants. The purpose of this registry is to identify individuals who have an interest in research studies conducted by researchers in the Department of Urology.
When a study is planned that appears to be appropriate for you based on the information you provide, you will be contacted by the Urology research recruiter by letter or email. The purposes of the contact will be to explain the study and to see if you are interested and eligible to participate. The number and type of study volunteers needed each year varies, so we can not guarantee that you will be contacted or enrolled in a study.
Participation in any study is voluntary. Submitting your name to the registry does not obligate you to respond to any requests for study volunteers.
If you would like to enroll, please read the following Consent Summary
