As part of the BioAge Study, we are collecting cheek swabs to measure marks on your DNA called methylation.
In 2021, you should have received a collection kit in the mail. All that you have to do to participate is collect two (2) cheek swabs, complete a short online survey (5 minutes or less) and return the samples in the pre-paid mailer included in the included with the sample collection kit. The sample collection kit includes instructions for how to provide a cheek swab, return mailing materials, as well as a link to our BioAge survey.
As a thank you for your participation, you will receive a $20 payment. As with the VUSNAPS main study, all of your information is confidential. On the survey form, you will have the opportunity to indicate your preferences for how we use your BioAge sample if you decide to participate.
