How will you use the survey, biological and genetic information data I give you?

To help us facilitate research investigating factors related to the development and treatment of eating disorders, we will isolate and analyse your DNA from the saliva sample that you provide us. Using advanced laboratory techniques, we will then identify a large set of common variants and some rare variants in your DNA. Your survey data will be used to gain a better understanding of your background and disorder which we will link to your genetic data in order to allow us to create a re-contactable research platform. In addition, your survey data will help us to identify future studies that you will be eligible to take part in, across both physical and mental health. All data that you provide us will be stored securely and be kept strictly confidential in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation.
