Volunteers needed for malaria research

Researchers at Johns Hopkins are in need of healthy adult male volunteers with type O+ blood to study malaria parasites and to sustain mosquito colonies used in crucial malaria research.

This research study involves a blood draw about every eight weeks; participants will be paid $7 at each visit.

You may qualify if you

  • are 18 or older
  • have O+ blood type
  • have not been to a malarious area in the past 10 years
  • are not regularly taking a prescription or over-the-counter medication
  • are willing to return repeatedly over time to donate

If you think you may be eligible and are interested in participating, call 443-287-7156 or email DDUResearch@jhmi.edu.
