Tick Bite Study at UNC. Have you been bitten by a tick and have a rash that is 2 inches or more across? You may be eligible for a study providing up to $400 in compensation. Help researchers learn more about the diseases associated with tick bites in Central North Carolina. Researchers at UNC are recruiting adults who have such circular rashes following a tick bite to obtain samples that will be sent to the CDC. Participation involves two visits with two small skin biopsies, blood and urine samples, and an interview about your bite and rash. Earn $200 per study visit. You do not need the tick to participate; if you have saved it, please bring it to your first visit. Contact the study at email@example.com or (984) 999-0680.
