SPARK autism study registration accepted

Led by Vanderbilt Kennedy Center’s Zachary Warren, Ph.D., the SPARK study is looking for individuals of all ages with a professional diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) to become part of the largest autism study ever undertaken in the United States.

Biological parents and full biological siblings (with and without ASD) are invited to participate as well. There’s no cost to register, no travel involved and no blood being drawn and compensation is valued at up to $50. 

SPARK's goal is to dramatically advance the pace of discovery regarding the causes, and ultimately novel treatments for, autism. Register at www.sparkforautism.org/vu.
