You are invited to participate in a research study on hereditary diseases that are associated with cancer, cardiovascular, obesity and autoimmune disease. Your donation could facilitate the development of new potentially lifesaving diagnosis and treatments. Blood samples from people of all backgrounds and communities will be used at the Ayass BioScience Laboratory for detecting genetic, epigenetic, proteomic and metabolomic causes of diseases.
If you have a family history with any of the above mentioned diseases or conditions and would like to learn more, please contact us at 972-668-6005.
