Research Participants' Rights
This one-page handout outlines in lay language the rights of research participants. Use with the short-form consent prepared for language minorities.
Also useful to hand out to research participants and can be used with any research study as part of the consent process.
Request for Tissue for Use in Research
For any of the research scenarios listed below, please fill out a
RLS New Study form
