Date: July 20, 2020

You're invited to participate in a free, voluntary and confidential COVID-19 antibody research program through our current University of Arizona research study approved through the Institutional Review Board (IRB). This joint university – state of Arizona initiative will identify whether you have been exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19 and have developed antibodies in response to it.

If you would like to participate, please follow these steps:

  • Visit the antibody testing initiative's webpage and explore the information and FAQs to learn more about this research study.
  • Click on the "Sign-Up" link to complete the study consent, fill out a health survey and select a convenient testing date, time and location.
  • After your appointment, your blood sample will be processed and you will receive an email when your test results are ready to view. Your results will be confidentially communicated to you via email. If you have questions, please send them to

While participation in this COVID-19 antibody research study is voluntary, we hope that you will consider this opportunity.

Please note: If you currently have symptoms of COVID-19 or were notified that you have had close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19, please contact Campus Health or your health care provider.
