Conquering Diseases

Study for Patients with Autoimmune Diseases of the Skin


All adults and children 6 - 17 years who have a skin condition such as vitiligo psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, or scleroderma or are a healthy control subject without the disease.


Autoimmune/Inflammatory skin disorders are common and cause a variety of skin problems, depending on the disease. This is a laboratory study to look at how skin diseases occur in the skin, including how immune cells choose to initiate disease as well as what causes them to enter the skin.

What we're hoping for

We hope to learn more about how and why this type of skin disease happens.
