Pre-screening questionnaire for studies with drug administration

Please note that our studies usually take place during regular business hours (Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm). In order to participate in the studies, it is best if you have some availability during these hours.

Due to the high volume of survey responses, it can take up to 1 week for our team to review your pre-screening information. If you do not hear from us within a week, please DO NOT fill out another questionnaire. Instead, please email us ( to see where you are in the recruitment process!
