Eating Disorder Survey
The Anorexia Nervosa Genetics Initiative (ANGI) is a global effort to identify genes that contribute to eating disorders. The goal of the study is to transform our knowledge about the causes of eating disorders and to work toward greater understanding and ultimately a cure. Researchers in the United States, Sweden, Australia, and Denmark will collect clinical information and blood samples from over 8,000 individuals with and without an eating disorder. If you have suffered from anorexia nervosa at any point in your life, you can help us achieve this goal. Your contribution would include a brief 30-minute interview and a blood sample. If you have never had anorexia nervosa, but still want to contribute, we invite your participation as well. Only with your participation can we achieve our goal of eliminating this devastating illness.
You can choose to participate in this research project yourself, or, you can refer someone you feel would be interested in participating in this study.
