Seeking Families to Participate in Sequencing (TABS) Study

Researchers at the Yale School of Medicine are currently recruiting more families for the TABS Study. The purpose of this study is to understand the relationship between genes and BFRBs.

The researchers are recruiting individuals affected by either trichotillomania or skin picking disorder as well as both of their parents. Eventually, we hope that this research will teach us

more about the causes of BFRBs so that this knowledge can inform better treatments in the future. Participating in this research involves providing a saliva sample for genetic analysis and

completing an online survey. Samples will be provided by mail - no site visit required! Please email or call 203-745-0267 to learn more.
