NYU School of Medicine Epidemiology Program seeks healthy
African-American volunteers age 20-70 to donate a small amount of blood
(8cc, or 3 tablespoons) for research on environmental risks and 
tobacco metabolism.  Smokers and non-smokers are needed.

The study will explore a variation in a gene that is involved in the 
metabolism of tobacco compounds.  A better understanding of the frequency of 
this variant may contribute to the explanation of an increased risk of 
tobacco-related cancers observed in African-Americans.

Volunteers will be paid $20.
