Healthy Volunteers Needed for UCL Respiratory IPF Trial

Would you like to contribute to Medical Research in Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis?

UCL Respiratory are currently recruiting volunteers to study the IPF fingerprint in the blood.

 

What does it involve?

Participation involves travelling to UCL Respiratory at the Rayne Institute UCL, 5 University Street, London WC1E 6JF, and donating approximately 30mL of blood.

What are the requirements?

You can participate if you are healthy and over 55 years of age.

Who will take my blood?

The blood sample will be taken by an experienced, trained phlebotomist.

Is 30mL a lot of blood?

30mL of blood is a small amount, a blood donation to the blood bank is generally 500mL.

What about travel expenses?

Travel expenses to and from UCL can be reimbursed (subject to prior approval).
