The University of MN Webinars and Research Study Opportunities
Infant Brain Imaging Study (IBIS): We’re looking for families who have an infant (0-6 months old) who has at least one older full-sibling diagnosed with autism. Expectant parents are encouraged to contact us. Our goal is to identify the symptoms of autism sooner. You will be asked to visit the UMN Twin Cities campus when your child is 6, 12, and 24 months old.All travel-related expenses for each study visit will be reimbursed. At each study visit, you can receive $170 in Target gift cards to thank you for your participation. For additional information or to enroll, call the study coordinator at 612-624-4533. You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Visit the IBIS Network website for more information: www.ibis-network.org.
Behavior and Sensory Experience Study (BASE): We are looking for children between 1 and 5 years of age diagnosed with any syndrome or disorder associated with developmental delays, such as Down syndrome, Tuberous sclerosis, fragile X syndrome, or fetal alcohol spectrum disorder, or with global developmental delay. The purpose of the study is to understand how early developmental experiences impact the development of behavior problems in young children with developmental delays by following kids and their families over an important developmental period. Video conference visits will take place twice per year, and take about 30-40 minutes each time. You would receive a $25 gift card for each home video visit that you complete. For more information about the study, please contact Adele Dimian, PhD at email@example.com
