Individuals without hair on their head needed for skin research study

Individuals without hair on their head (such as male pattern baldness) and with normal, healthy skin are needed to donate skin samples aspart of research in the Department of Dermatology. We hope that information from this study will help with problems like skin breakdown in our patients with amputations and prosthetics.

Study volunteers must also meet the following criteria:

  • Be age 18-65
  • Be in good health
  • Have no hair or minimal hair on your head
  • Be willing to come in for multiple visits over 10 months and undergo a lab test (one time)

Compensation for time and travel available up to $600

Funded by the Armed Forces Institute for Regenerative Medicine and the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases
