Genes and Phenotype (GAP) A National Resource for Genotype-Phenotype Studies of Immunological and Inflammatory Pathways
The purpose of this study is to enrol generally healthy adults, who are asked to provide a blood sample, to study how the immune system works.

|Official Title:||Genes and Phenotype (GAP) A National Resource for Genotype-Phenotype Studies of Immunological and Inflammatory Pathways|
- Number of healthy participants enrolled [ Time Frame: 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]This is a registry to enroll healthy individuals who are interested in being contacted about research studies they can participate in as a healthy control
Biospecimen Retention: Samples With DNA
Blood sample will be processed to isolate DNA and peripheral blood mononuclear cells, which will be stored in our Biorepository.
|Study Start Date:||May 2009|
|Study Completion Date:||April 2015|
|Primary Completion Date:||April 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
|Healthy Control Group|
The primary purpose of this research is to develop a better understanding of how the immune system works. By studying immune function in many people, we will be able to determine the range of normal variation.
The second purpose is to enroll people who are willing to serve as comparisons in future research studies into the Genotype and Phenotype Research Registry (GAP Registry).
Volunteers are asked to provide information on age, ethnicity and medical history. Volunteers are asked to provide a blood sample of up to 100cc and allow us to contact you about additional studies.
