Study Of Skin Immunity Throughout Childhood


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


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

What we're hoping for

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.
