Join the NEPTUNE Contact Registry for Nephrotic Syndrome/Glomerular Disease
Thank you for your interest in the NEPTUNE Contact Registry. This Contact Registry allows individuals with Nephrotic Syndrome or Glomerular Disease to register themselves to receive information about studies conducted by NEPTUNE, a member of the Rare Diseases Clinical Research Network (RDCRN).
By joining the Contact Registry, you will be asked to provide information about you (or your child) and how you can be contacted. The RDCRN will use that information in two ways:
- To contact individuals who might qualify for participation in a research study
- To learn more about your disease. This will help these researchers better design and conduct clinical studies.
This information is collected by the RDCRN Data Management and Coordinating Center and is not shared with anyone without your expressed permission.
You will be given the option to share the information you enter into the RDCRN Contact Registry directly with NEPTUNE study doctors and research staff.
