Scientists want adolescents and young adults to take part in a study to learn more about how an aniridia-related gene affects sleep.
Are you the kind of person they are recruiting?
- aged 10 to 20 years old with aniridia
- medically stable
- do or do not have a sleep disorder
- not taking or able to stop taking sleep medication for 2 weeks.
Participation involves wearing a watch-like activity monitor called an actigraph on the wrist for 7 days and completing a sleep diary.
The researchers are based in the USA. However the study is open to people in the UK and there is no need to travel to take part. There is no cost to participate, and volunteers will be compensated for their time. Minors will require parent/guardian permission.
