The Ethical Tissue bank at the University of Bradford are collecting skin biopsies from people with alopecia areata. The tissue collected will be used for the Alopecia UK funded project Characterising the role of antigen presenting cells in alopecia areata, run by Dr Mardaryev at the University of Bradford.

If you are interested in taking part in this study, please call Annette Essex on 01274 365456.

Scientists need these human tissues, cells and body fluids for research into how a disease starts as well as finding different ways of diagnosing and treating it. The purpose of Ethical Tissue is to help biomedical researchers to prevent, diagnose and treat a wide range of illnesses.

Tissue will also be available on request for other alopecia areata research projects.
