Elucidating the Role of Pax6 in Obesity among Aniridics


Grainger Robert, M

The UVA Health System seeks men and women ages 18 – 80 for a study looking at metabolism. To participate as a control patient you must not have an eye disease called Aniridia. The study needs control patients who are overweight. Participation requires one visit to UVA. The visit will last about 2 hours. Volunteers for the control group will be asked to fill out a few questionnaires and will have two blood draws. The first blood draw will be done fasting. There is no cost to participate. Participants will receive a $50.00 gift card for participating. For more information, please contact Monika Thielen at (434) 243-2852 or
