Volunteers Needed for Asthma Study

People of African ancestry have a higher incidence of asthma and allergic diseases compared to other population groups. Researchers at NHGRI are investigating whether there is a genetic cause for this. Understanding the role that genes play may someday lead to better treatments for these conditions. Consider volunteering, if you are at least 18 years of age and self-identify as Black, African, African American or African Caribbean—both healthy volunteers and adults diagnosed with asthma are needed.
