When people choose to participate in any study that involves research with human subjects, they sign consent forms that explain the study and what they are agreeing to by participating. This is to ensure that participants fully understand what being a part of any particular research project involves. The below consent forms contain more specific information about each component of the Spit for Science project. You will get the survey consent online before you enter the survey. You will get a copy of the DNA consent form when you come in to pick up your payment for the survey and have the opportunity to give a DNA (saliva) sample if you have not already provided one. We encourage you to download and read these forms:
