We are recruiting volunteers for research.

We are actively seeking Elderly Singaporeans who are willing to
donate a blood sample for DNA sequencing.
The purpose of this research is to establish a local control set of
healthy genomes for all future reference.
You will be eligible for the study if you are aged 80-90 and have no
chronic disease, such as high blood pressure and diabetes.
If you contact us for the study, we will only need to pay you a home
visit that should last no longer than 1 hours at a mutually
convenient time.
During the home visit*, we will go through a questionnaire with you
and take a small blood sample.
*No further procedure or contact will take place after this home visit.
