Lay Description

The purpose of this study is to identify genes and related RNA (ribonucleic acid) from healthy individuals, aged 18 to 35 years, that are expressed in our immune cells (i.e. the cells that fight infections in our body) that may be contributing to the risk of developing certain diseases like Crohn’s disease, atherosclerosis, and autoimmune diseases. This will be carried out by having study participants attend a short clinic visit that consists of a blood draw, a brief medical survey, and height/weight/blood pressure measurements.
