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.

This information is available to investigators studying the disease and pharmaceutical companies developing treatments.
