AGE-RELATED ABILITY TO SYNTHESISE VITAMIN D IN THE SKIN ON EXPOSURE TO SUNLIGHT

Description

Researchers from the University of Manchester are looking for white caucasian volunteers aged 18 to 40 and 65 to 89 to take part in a study to see if there is a difference between young and older adults in how much Vitamin D is their skin able to produce on response to sunlight. The study involves giving ultraviolet light exposures and measuring vitamin D production using blood and small skin samples.  Reimbursement will be provided for travel costs, and time and inconvenience involved.
