Description of Organization and Service Provided

The STAR Registry is a database of Iowans age 50 and older who are interested in volunteering for research studies at the University of Iowa.

Older adults are typically under-represented in scientific research, making study results less helpful to the older population. STAR was created to:

• facilitate the inclusion of older adults in UI research studies
• help increase the quantity and quality of research relating to older adults

STAR matches research volunteers with studies for which they are likely to qualify, using information provided by each volunteer. STAR volunteers fill out a four-page registration form about general medical history, behavioral and demographic information. All data is secure and kept strictly confidential according to guidelines established by the University of Iowa Institutional Review Board.
