MGA offers local researchers the opportunity to post notices about their work and calls for participation in studies which have been formally reviewed and approved by an IRB or related committee at the researchers' host institution.  Postings reflect a professional courtesy for MGA's local research community and do not reflect MGA's endorsement of particular studies or research programs. All participation is voluntary. If you have questions about a particular study, please contact the research investigator. If you have more general questions about postings, please send your inquiry to:
