Hi, and welcome! I also live in the Detroit area, and even signed up to volunteer for the study at Wayne State with Dr. Haacke. I was not contacted, but I know others, even from as far away as Missouri, were contacted and will be going in for the study. I have no idea what the criteria are that they are looking for, but obviously there is more than just your proximity to where the study is being done. You could call there and ask to speak to someone about it for more information, but I am just going to bypass this and go right on to Stanford, when my insurance gets approved. I am already on the list there, just waiting.
Goodluck to you!
