Male and female blood donors needed

Healthy men and women who want to donate blood are needed. Volunteers will be compensated up to $30 for each donation. Donations typically take less than 20 minutes and are performed at the East Baltimore campus. The need for donors is ongoing; if you qualify to be added to the lab's donor list, you may choose to donate to one experiment or to multiple ones, as the lab develops new cell culture studies in the future.

To qualify as a blood donor, "a healthy control," you must:

  • be between 21-45 years old
  • not smoke or vape
  • not be pregnant
  • not have other chronic health conditions

If you are interested in participating, the lab will set up a blood draw around your schedule. Help researchers understand better important health problems. Call the lab at 410-955-1747 or send an email to Melina,, with the phrase "Asthma and allergy study" in the title.
