Alopecia Areata Registry
Consider donating your data and research samples to the Alopecia Areata Registry, Biobank & Clinical Trials Network, the largest collection of alopecia areata data and DNA samples in the world. When you contribute information about yourself to the registry, it is catalogued and stored in a central repository overseen by the National Alopecia Areata Foundation (NAAF). This information is available to investigators studying the disease and pharmaceutical companies developing treatments.
FDA Report: Patient-Focused Drug Development Program

The U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) explored alopecia areata with patients through its Patient-Focused Drug Development (PFDD) program. At a meeting of patients held on Monday, September 11, 2017, the FDA gathered feedback on living with the disease and reactions to treatment options. The FDA continued to gather patient input after the meeting and published a "The Voice of the Patient" report with all patient feedback.
