Sensitive Skin and Rosacea

"In 2016, the definition of sensitive skin (SS) was established by a special interest group from the International Forum for the Study of Itch. SS is defined as a syndrome defined by the appearance of unpleasant sensations (stinging, burning, pain, pruritus, and tingling sensations) in response to stimuli that would not normally cause such sensations.....To our knowledge, only 2 transcriptomic studies have been performed for SS. ...As previously done with rosacea, these two studies provide very interesting data allowing, orientating and suggesting further research. Transcriptomic studies on larger populations are needed but these studies give key data to focus on some pathogenic mechanisms."

What if a non profit organization for rosacea gathered together 10,000 members, and each member donated one dollar and everyone agreed that a study on transcriptomic research be conducted? Could that be done? It is all up to you whether you think this would be worth investigating.
