How can AminoChain benefit research participants
What are Research Participants worried about?
Where do my samples go?
Sometimes, researchers will tell you where your samples will be stored; but if they remove your name & personal health information, there is no limit as to where they could go.
Who is using them, and what are they used for?
Certain types of consent allow researchers to use your samples for whatever they like, and there is no way of knowing for sure that you would approve of all cases.
Is someone profiting from my samples & data?
In many cases, your samples could contribute to scientific breakthroughs, inform novel drug production, or novel technology licenses. We believe that you should share in these benefits.
What if this affects my standard of care?
All consent documents promise you that participation in research is voluntary and will not affect your standard of care. Nonetheless, you should be able to track how your samples & data are used, so that the researchers can show you who has access and why.
