Participate in COPDGene

Thank you for your interest in the COPDGene® Study! It is though the help of individuals like you that we are able to better understand the development and presentation of COPD and work to design treatments and possibly one day a cure. If you would like to participate in the COPDGene® Study, please find a clinical study center nearest you and call to schedule an appointment with one of our clinical research coordinators. When you call, the research coordinator will ask you several questions to see if you meet the eligibility requirements for participation in the COPDGene® Study. If you do meet the requirements, the research coordinator will schedule a time for you to come into the clinic and complete the study visit when it is convenient for you.
