Study Participation Contact

Currently, the HIHG conducts a number of genetic studies examining human diseases and disorders. While details may vary from study to study, trained members of our team will perform family history interviews and other diagnostic interviews and will draw a blood sample. There is no cost or payment for your participation.

We maintain the highest standards of confidentiality for all participants and families. Your participation will help us to better understand the genetic and environmental causes of diseases and disorders, which may eventually lead to improved treatments and prevention methods, and hopefully a cure.

If you are interested in joining any research study, please contact the HIHG study coordinators by calling 1-877-686-6444 or by emailing
