Research study at Penn State University, USA.


We are currently seeking research participants who have been diagnosed with idiopathic hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (IHH), including Kallmann Syndrome (KS), for such a study. This study is being run through the Pennsylvania State University Department of Anthropology and in collaboration with Dr. William Crowley of the Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard University. To participate, you must be 18 years of age or older.

Although you may wish to participate out of a desire to promote this research, you will also be compensated for your participation (about 45 minutes online) with $25. We would also like relatives of IHH participants (siblings or first cousins) to participate in the study. If you have IHH (including KS) and have a relative who might be interested in participating, please pass this information on to them. You may still participate even if you do not have a relative who is willing to participate in this study. To find out more about the study and to sign up, please visit the following website:
