Clinical Trial Details

Overview

Research Study Summary

Study to assess the genetic factors predisposing individuals and families to develop obesity/diabetes

Purpose

This study will require one visit (approx. one half hour) to Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center in New York, or your private physician or clinic. The visit will cover the following:

  • Discussing and signing an informed consent
  • Family and medical history
  • Measurements: weight and height, blood drawing

We offer $25 per participant.

The collective participation of many individuals and families with obesity/diabetes will enable physicians and scientists to gain a better understanding of the genetic causes of these diseases, and ultimately to find better ways of treating (and preventing) these problems.
