Immune Cell Activation of Healthy Human Subjects


About this study

The purpose of this research study is to establish a pool of healthy donors who will regularly participate in our research studies of human immunity. The studies in our laboratory investigate the role of human blood cells in immunity to fungal disease and lung fibrosis. Most of our studies require blood that is freshly drawn. Thus, we propose to draw blood on an as needed, ongoing basis.
