Research Participants

My name is Emily Knaub, and I am a senior at Butler University conducting research for my undergraduate thesis.  Having one kidney myself, I have always been interested in nephrology and transplants.  During my initial research on kidney transplants, I discovered a noticeable lack of research regarding the experiences of living kidney donors and was inspired to focus my thesis on these donors.  Accordingly, I am in need of survey participants for my research.  If you are interested in participating or would simply like to learn more about my research, please click the link below.  Thank you for your help!

Dear Emily,
      You might want to also post your request at FaceBook, as these days more donors check in there. There is a "Living Donors on Line" page, and also a "Living Kidney Donors" page and even a few others, even a "Living Donors with Complications" page.

Dear Emily,
     Hi again. I clicked the survey, but it said only U.S. residents. I am a U.S. citizen and donated a kidney while in the U.S., but have been living full[time in Japan for the past 13 years. Can I take the survey_

Yes, you are absolutely able to take the survey!  I am limiting my research to people that donated a kidney at a hospital in the United States, and it seems you qualify.  I apologize for the confusing wording on the consent form, and I will be sure to amend it.
