MIRIAD IBD Biobank Patient & Control Participation
The MIRIAD Biobank offers an excellent opportunity to participate in the effort to improve treatment and find a cure for IBD. Samples and information are needed from people with IBD and even their relatives. These materials are provided directly to investigators for use in IBD research studies.
Samples from people without IBD are also needed, as these serve as control specimens for laboratory experiments.

You will not be paid for providing samples and data for this biobank. Once you provide the samples for research, you no longer have access to them. The donated samples become the property of Cedars-Sinai and may be used to develop new products, tests or discoveries that may result in commercial profit for the researchers, Cedars-Sinai, and/or other organizations. You will not receive any financial benefits if this happens. Cedars-Sinai may receive compensation from such third-party entities to cover reasonable costs incurred by Cedars-Sinai in connection with the collection and maintenance of samples and data in the MIRIAD Biobank.
