What is a Clinical Trial?
Be Part of Something Big to Help Beat Heart Disease

Will you be our 200th Cardiac Biorepository participant?

Nancy Sweitzer, MD, PhD and the Sarver Heart Center research team are very close to enrolling 200 participants in the Sarver Heart Center Biorepository. Please help us reach our goal of enrolling 100 participants each year by enrolling now! Read more: This means completing a questionnaire, signing an informed consent form that allows researchers to view your electronic medical record, and donating about 3 tablespoons of blood. These blood samples will help scientists better understand heart disease to improve care and treatment now and in the future. Dr. Sweitzer is the principal investigator. Click on the Cardiology Research Registry link to the right and you might be our 200th participant!

An Institutional Review Board responsible for human subjects research at The University of Arizona reviewed this research project and found it to be acceptable, according to applicable state and federal regulations and University policies designed to protect the rights and welfare of participants in research.

This won’t take much – just three tablespoons of your blood, about the amount taken during a standard blood draw. This small amount will help us ask bigger questions and get better answers as we move toward a future free of heart disease and stroke. You don’t have to have heart disease to be part of this big venture. You just need to be at least 18 years old. Learn more.
