GENERAL INFORMATION

Researchers want to learn more about human milk and how it influences child health and development. Parents want to know how to best feed their babies and keep them healthy. Together, we can achieve this goal. You can donate two ounces of human milk, and we’ll keep it safe for a role in future research projects.
