Participate in an BIA-ALCL study!

ASAPS’ research funding arm, the Aesthetic Surgery Education and Research Foundation (ASERF), is supporting the research proposal of Dr. Marshall Kadin, entitled “Clonal Evolution of T cells in the Pathogenesis of ALCL.”  Dr. Kadin has exciting preliminary results supporting his hypothesis, but needs additional specimens of late seromas (clinically benign or malignant) to obtain significant confirmatory data.  To participate, please click on the links below:
