Be included! Families of children with Down syndrome are invited to participate in our new study about genetics and health. The Waisman BioLibrary is recruiting youth with Down syndrome ages 0 – 17 years. Families make a one-time visit to the Waisman Center at UW-Madison or a remote visit option is available. The visit lasts 2-3.5 hours during which caregivers complete questionnaires on their child’s abilities and behaviors. Children with Down syndrome provide a blood or saliva sample and may also have cognitive, memory, and learning tests. Families earn up to $150 for participation and round-trip mileage reimbursement for in-person testing.
