UConn Behavioral Gene Bank

The UConn Behavioral Gene Bank (IRB #07-131-1 exp. 03/25/14) is a registry and repository program operated jointly by the Department of Psychiatry, the Department of Genetics and Developmental Biology and the Clinical Research Center (CRC) at UConn Health.

Our program asks volunteers to donate blood, skin or other tissues for research. From blood samples, we plan to establish a Gene Bank to support research to find causes of illnesses or behavioral disorders.

Participation is voluntary and free.
