Do You Want to Be a Volunteer in Research Studies?

Research at ISGlobal-Campus Mar

Our program of volunteers in research studies takes place at ISGlobal-Campus Mar. At our Mar Campus we conduct research projects to study the impact of environmental factors (air or water pollution, radiation, etc.) on the population health. For some projects, the participation of volunteers is needed. We will offer an annual session for the volunteers to explain them our research.

What does it mean to be a volunteer?

If you provide us your data, we will incorporate you into the “volunteers list”. ISGlobal-Campus Mar technicians and researchers could contact you according to your characteristics and the needs of the studies for answering questionnaires and for other health testing. The participation of volunteers in any epidemiological study is protected by strict ethical controls. Your authorization will be necessary to participate, and you can withdraw from the study whenever you want. The information provided (which will be treated confidentially in accordance with Data Protection Law 15/1999, December 13th) will greatly help us in the investigation and improvement of population health.


In accordance with articles 5 and 6 of Law 15/1999 on personal data protection, we inform you that your personal data will be incorporated into a Contacts and Institutional Relations file, for which the Private Foundation Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal) is responsible and which will be used to manage contact information and institutional relations and to inform you of other activities promoted by the Foundation that may be of interest to you. If you do not inform us otherwise within 30 days, ISGlobal will understand that you have consented to the processing of your data. Your information will not be disclosed to individuals or legal public or private entities without your consent unless authorized by law.
