Australian Autism Biobank

by Jemma (follow)
Can your biological samples contribute to a brighter future for autism?

Olga Tennison Autism Research Centre are seeking children aged 2-17 years, with or without a diagnosis of autism and their parents to participate in the Australian Autism Biobank. This research is being conducted by Autism CRC. La Trobe University is an Essential Participant in this centre and one of four collection sites nationally.

The aim is to collect and store a large number of biological samples, as well as comprehensive background information about participants, that will be used to answer diverse research questions about autism both now and into the future.

Participating involves:
Completing a questionnaire pack
An appointment at OTARC (La Trobe Bundoora) for a child-friendly assessment
Basic physical measurements: height, weight, and head circumference
Collection of biological (stool/urine/hair) samples
Collection of biological (blood) samples
