Help develop the first test for Interstitial Cystitis!

Interstitial Cystitis (IC) can result in reoccurring severe pain in the bladder and/or compromised urinary function. Diagnosing IC is difficult as there currently is no medical test available. Therefore, there is a need for a medical test for IC. Your contribution to this research will help researchers develop a urine-based test for IC.
