  • Healthy children needed for autism research

    Mayo Clinic is seeking healthy children to participate in a research study. The purpose of this study is to learn more about the role of metal ion imbalance in Autism Spectrum Disorder. 

    Your child may be eligible if: 

    • Your child is 24-47 months old
    • Your child is healthy
    • You have no developmental concerns regarding your child

    The study includes 1 or 2 visits. We will collect hair and nail samples from your child. We would also like to collect a blood sample, but this part of the study is optional. 

    You will be compensated for your time.
