Do You Have Low Back Pain?


We invite you to join our research registry for people with low back pain. To enroll in the PRECISION Pain Research Registry, you will be asked to answer questions approximately every three months. All study encounters may be completed electronically. You may also request to complete the initial encounter in-person and subsequent encounters by telephone. You will be asked to provide a one-time saliva sample for analysis of DNA and other biomarkers. If you choose to complete the initial encounter in-person, you will also be asked to provide a blood sample. In-person visits will be held at the University of North Texas Health Science Center campus in Fort Worth’s Cultural District. You will be compensated for your time and travel. You must be between the ages of 21 and 79 years, and may not be pregnant to enroll in this registry. To learn more, please call 817-735-5410, or email us at You may also click here to complete an online screening to see if you qualify to enroll in the registry. We look forward to hearing from you.

Do you have a study or clinical trial open to the public? (Post on the Public Research web-page)


We now have a page on our website where people from the community interested in participating in a research study or clinical trial can learn about these opportunities.
The goal is to include all of the studies at the Health Science Center that are seeking participants from the community in order to create a cohesive directory of research studies on our campus, and to help increase awareness of the depth and breadth of our research.
The page, Current Research Studies, allows UNTHSC researchers to complete a form requesting to post information about their studies on the page. Once the IRB reviews the information to ensure that it has been approved, the content will automatically appear on the page.
The Community Relations team promotes this page at health fairs, and other promotions are planned.
You may find a study that you personally would like to participate in, and you can feel free to share the page with others.
Anyone with questions may email
