joreth: (polyamory)
I have received a request to forward a notice for a polyamorous research study. This is a study done by researchers at the University of Michigan, who are studying how partnering, sexuality, and hormones are associated. They are studying both monogamous and non-monogamous people, and I think this will be a fantastic opportunity for the poly community. The study will take place over 2 years, requiring 12 saliva samples and filling out questionnaires. They will provide all the materials necessary to collect the saliva sample and send it to them. The saliva will be analyzed for hormonal content and it will not be studied for genetic analysis of any kind in any way. They will also pay you for your contributions, for a total of $80 over the 2 years. If you are female, you must not be on hormonal birth control.

I am volunteering. If anyone else is interested, here is the information.
