Join the AN25K Initiative in the United Kingdom
Thank you for your interest in becoming part of the historic AN25K project. If you live in the UK and have ever had a diagnosis anorexia nervosa you may be eligible to have your DNA added to the project. The process involves donating a blood or saliva sample and filling in a questionnaire or doing a short (<15 minute) phone interview.
The form below will add your name to the mailing list of possible participants. You can expect to be contacted by King's College London BioResource for Mental Health (biobank) for further details on joining the study. Your contact details will be used only for this purpose.
This DNA research is a partnership between Kings College London and the AN25K initiative out of University of North Carolina's Centre for Excellence for Eating Disorders. Funding for the UK collections is being financed by donations to Charlotte's Helix.
As of 25 May, 2018, we are no longer collecting names for the project on this site, but please contact us if you would like more information: INFO@Charlotteshelix.net
