The Penn State Personalized Research for Innovation, Discovery, and Education (PRIDE) Program.
The Penn State Personalized Research for Innovation, Discovery, and Education (PRIDE) Program. The aims of the PRIDE Program are to: 1. Create a centralized Biorepository using extra blood obtained from a clinically-ordered, or another IRB approved research protocol initiated blood draw, leftover biospecimens that are removed during medically indicated procedures or a saliva sample from consented participants that do not have clinically ordered blood draws or a medical procedure. 2. Construct a dynamic database of health and related data (via both manual and electronic abstraction) from consented participants. 3. Establish a mechanism for approving use of the banked biospecimens for future research.
The participant will meet with PRIDE Program team member in person to join the study. The participant with supply a saliva sample for the program. There is no compensation for joining the PRIDE Program.
