These consent forms were used in various NIH-funded research projects and have been approved by the relevant local IRBs. The posting of complete forms on this Informed Consent Resource is meant to complement the sample language found in the other sections. These are not provided as guidance or templates promoted by NHGRI, but as references to inform investigators and IRBs considering these issues. It is important to tailor consent forms for each individual study.
