What is a research program?
Research and development must be performed to provide more accurate and advanced genetic testing services. Current genetic tests are like a type of 'present' that became possible through people who gladly donated their human-derived materials for the development in human health decades ago. If you sign the consent form for the research of human-derived materials, we will not discard your DNA after genetic testing and use it in research activities that can contribute to the human health. This research program uses your collected human-derived materials and genetic information obtained from them in researches of diagnosis and treatment development of diseases. Your agreement is voluntary, so ask questions to the consultant of any inquiries and decide after sufficient consideration. Whether or not you agree to this research program does not affect your future tests at all.
