Donate a Small Amount of Blood or Saliva

Blood Cells

Clinical research would not be possible without the support of volunteers. Your participation in clinical trials will contribute to the research effort by helping doctors and scientists not only understand complex diseases, but also improve the treatments available to patients. By volunteering today you help save lives tomorrow!

How you can help:

We are currently looking for volunteers (age birth to 30 years of age) who are healthy and free of any illnesses. Participants donate a small amount of blood (1-2 tablespoons) or Saliva, which will be used as a comparison to blood from children with diseases such as cancer. The study visit will last approximately 30 min. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please contact:

Joy Rupenthal (Riley Hospital- participants under age of 30) at (317) 274-4415 or
Carole Weir (University Hospital- participants of any age) at (317) 274-0955.
