Study Of Skin Immunity Throughout Childhood

Description

Seeking children under 18 years of age and healthy volunteers from 6 to 18 to study the skin immune system.

Overview

Participants in this study will have several samples collected of their skin using methods designed to minimize pain and risks to participants.

The researchers want to learn more about the skin’s immune cells from infants to teenagers. We will do this by collecting skin and blood samples from different groups and ages of children.
