TIGER Study

The Investigation of Genetic Exome Research

Study Goal:

The University of Washington is looking for subjects to participate in a new study exploring how different genetic events impact behavior in children 4 years of age through adulthood.

What is Involved:

  • Research subjects: Participation includes a visit to the University of Washington during which we will conduct a diagnostic evaluation, neurocognitive assessment, language testing, dysmorphological examination, a blood draw, an EEG, an optional skin biopsy and collect a detailed developmental history.  Testing will occur over the course of two days.
  • Parents: Parents will provide a detailed developmental history through interviews over the phone as and during the visit as well as fill out questionnaires about their child. Both parents are invited to participate in neurocognitive assessment and language testing as well.

Other Information:

Expenses related to the study visit (airfare, lodging, per diem) will be covered by the study and subjects will be reimbursed $100 for their participation. Click here for downloadable PDF.
